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 was sitting in my living room and watched out of the windows and wrote my mother a small message like “Do you see the clouds? Looks like the end of world”. She replied “Yea, pretty … Continue reading Today We Had A Heavy And Destructive Thunderstorm in Northern Germany

In the photo above you can see one of my discoveries. It´s a HSV (Hamburger SV) jersey with original signatures of some players from that time.

I played in a youth soccer club … Continue reading Old HSV Jersey with Player Signatures
