A country’s flag gives us a first glance into that country’s culture. Flags have symbols and colors that are meaningful.
The Lebanese flag has the colors red and white on it surrounding a cedar tree. Red represents bloodshed, while white represents purity. The cedar tree represents the Bible. Interesting, huh?
The American flag has thirteen stripes and 50 stars, each representing one of our 50 independent states and our original 13 colonies.
The next time you visit another country, or even a different state, take a look at their flag. You will learn something, and it will mean something to their citizens…
