Flag of Hamburg


A while ago I started photographing flags because I often see some on my ways. So, I created a tag for flag photos and I do now collect them on my blog too. At the top, you can see the flag with the coat of arms of Hamburg. The colors of Hamburg are white and red. The Hamburg coat of arms always shows a castle with three towers. The tower in the middle has a cross on top and it’s believed that it stems from the fact that Hamburg was an archbishopric. You can learn more about it on Wikipedia. Continue reading Flag of Hamburg

I don’t have much flags on my blog yet, but that might change in a couple of years too (laugh). Here are the photos of flags … Continue reading Danish Flag

Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle


The WordPress photo challenge from last friday came with the motto Circle, and I thought the flag of the European Union would fit to the challenge theme. The reason is obvious, the symbol of the flag is a circle of stars. The photo maybe fits a little bit too perfectly to the theme, and my entry appears less creative in my opinion, but I think I could use the image for other topics in the future and it’s great to have photos of flags uploaded to my blog. I like the idea of an association of states that warrants or … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle
