Interesting Flags from Around the World
I was assisting my supervisor in the International Education Center at FSU and the task at hand was organizing a box full of flags. Anyways as I was shuffling through all of the various flags, I decided to take a quick snapshot of the flags I found the most interesting. The first flag that I thought was interesting was from the country of Ghana. I am not sure what the bird is, but my guess is that its a chicken!
The second flag I thought was interesting is the photo above, it is from the country of Dominica. I thought that a parrot was an interesting bird to use for one’s flag. I also thought it is cute how this parrot is portrayed as a cartoony kind of parrot.
The next flag is from the country of Martinique, which is apparently founded around the Galapagos Islands and is French territory. I really hate snakes and I think most countries portray snakes as deceptive/ evil creatures. I thought it was interesting that of all the beautiful animals in the world, why would you chose a SNAKE?!
I thought it was weird how people were present on this flag and two people with what appears to be weapons. Apparently the country of Belize chose this image as a reminder of the oppression they encounter under the British.
This project of organizing and labeling flags was very interesting and I learned a lot about the different countries in the process! If anyone has some flags that they think are interesting, please leave a comment describing it!
