Hawthorne Hotel Flags of the Week ~~ January 16 through 22, 2012

No special requests so far.

Monday , January 16 Colombia and Hawaii
Tuesday , January 17 Comoros and Idaho

The somewhat new Comoros flag was officially adopted in 1993. The crescent, stars and the color green are traditional symbols of Islam. The horizontal stripes and the four stars represent the country's main islands of Mwali, Njazidja, Nzwai and Mayotte. Note that Mayotte is a territory of France, but claimed by Comoros.

Wednesday , January 18 Democratic Republic of Congo and Illinois
Thursday , January 19 Costa Rica and Indiana

The blue color represents the sky, ample opportunities, intellectual thinking, eternity, infinite and religious ideals and spiritual desires.White symbolizes happiness, wisdom, power and beauty of the sky, clear thinking, driving force of initiatives and the peace of Costa Rica. Red stands for the warmth of the people, their bloodshed for freedom, generous attitude and vibrancy. Costa Rica's coat of arms is found on the red line and the three volcanoes of the country are featured in it.

Friday , January 20 Cote d'Ivoire and Iowa
Saturday , January 21 Croatia and Kansas
Sunday , January 22 Cuba and Kentucky

Placed on a navy blue field is the seal and words "Commonwealth of Kentucky". The two people on the seal, a pioneer and a statesman, represent all the people. They are acting out the meaning of Kentucky's motto: "United We Stand; Divided We Fall". Sprays of goldenrod extend in a half circle around the picture. 

I hope to see you here.
