Horizontal tricolour of red, white and green

*strength (red), faithfulness (white), hope (green)* facade of town council office*
Boys and girls, do you remember learning the origin of your country's flag at school? For me, it was an interesting experience getting to know the history behind each colour and symbol. After one year+ living in Hungary, it's about time that I study the story behind the flag of Hungary. Thank goodness for google and wikipedia!

An interesting and beautiful photo. Are these flowers geraniums?

Lisi said...

haha Kris, the answer to your question is NO, we in HK didn't get told about the British flag and they started to educate ppl about the Chinese flag I was in Canada and somehow, I didn't know about the Canadian flag too...i'm completely ignorant about flags hehe

Strength, faithfulness and hope are very good values to have - as long as the faithfulness and strength are employed toward promotion of kindness and social/physical health.

This is a very interesting way to teach the meaning of the flag's colors.
