Modern-day African Flags

February 23, 2012 · Posted in Africa · Comment 

I am fond of researching flagpoles and flags. A little while ago I started a new adventure researching African flags. Here is another one my articles on current African flags that are attached to poles and displayed from other objects.

Considering the many countries in Africa, only a few countries will be reviewed. A random selection of flags will be reviewed. Some historical facts will be given, as well as information regarding the geographical location of the nations in this wonderful part of the world. More information is freely available in other places online, if interested in more information.

Western Sahara’s flag was adopted in 1976, on 2/27. This country adopted their respective flag the day after the Spanish left. It has been hoisted on Western Saharan flagpoles for more than 35 years! The country’s standard resembles Palestine’s standard. Different elements on this flag are symbolic for Islam.

Algeria flies a flag from Algerian poles that feature green, white and red. These colors mainly symbolize Islam, the predominant religion in this part of the world. Green represents Islam, white symbolizes purity, and the color red represents liberty. The Red Crescent and star is a symbol of this religion.

I have some good friends from the Republic of Ghana This country was the very first to fly the so-called “Ethiopian” colors from African flag poles. These colors are in fact called today the “Pan-African” colors respectively. This horizontal tricolor shows the colors red, yellow and green. The yellow horizontal stripe displays a black star.

Western countries in Europe colonized North Africa. Countries in Asia also colonized parts of this incredible continent. Notably the Kingdom of Great Britain, but also France and Portugal. They claimed a great many parts of Africa. During the 20th century different African countries claimed independence. Guinea became independent first, following their dependence on France.

In conclusion, the standard of the Republic of the Congo was first flown from African flagpoles in 1958. Even though adopted in the fifties, it was abandoned for some years, but flown again in ’91. The current flag features the Pan-African colors diagonally, which sets it apart from the other African flags that use similar colors.

There are some details to keep in mind when selecting fiberglass flag poles.

International Italian Banners And Flagpoles

February 23, 2012 · Posted in Europe · Comment 

The Italian flag is flown from Italian flagpoles throughout Europe. This beautiful tricolor resembles certain other national flags. This national standard was adopted back in 1948, shortly after the Second World War. The three vertical stripes have the same width, but display different colors. The vertical stripe on the left displays the color green, the one in the middle is white, and the vertical stripe on the right is red.

Unfortunately, Italy was hit hard by the world-wide recession. This country is dealing with the effects of debt, and other financial problems. Different rating companies have given a negative outlook on the Italian national debt. The latter means that another downgrade of the country’s debt rating could be imminent. The Italian government has taken measures to save more than 100 billion Euros!

I am sure you have heard of or a familiar with of Rome, Italy’s capital. This city was the political center when the Roman Empire was still organized. Following the end of the Roman Empire, Italy was divided into a number of different kingdoms, but was again unified in the 19th century. Today’s Italy is a democratic republic, like most other countries in Europe.

The Italian tricolor came forth from the flags used in the new republics in northern Italy from 1796 and onwards. Green is said to have been Napoleon’s favorite color, or the local militia uniforms might have inspired it. The first vertical arrangement was used long before ’48

Ever since ’06 the president of Italy has been Giorgio Napolitano. He is the head of the state. An Italian president is elected for a period of seven years, like previous presidents of Italy. It is the president who selects the prime minister as well as the cabinet. Berlusconi was such for a few years till November of last year.

Italian flags are available fore sale here in the United States of America, in different materials and sizes. When selecting the proper flag materials, it is important to know where the flag will be flown, in terms of location. Weather conditions and sunlight are important factors to take into consideration when selecting the material of a flag. A flag made from lower grades of the polyester material may simply not work if you are seeking more of a durable flag.

Fascinating national flags for purchase include Italy flags, and the flag of Germany.

Historic State Banners Attached To Flagpoles

January 29, 2012 · Posted in Hobbies · Comment 

A recently developed hobby challenged me to research certain differences between state flags. Many flags are hoisted throughout our Nation today from mostly home flag poles, and at times other objects. The 5 main category types of flags are (number one:) those that display emblems that tie into the war of independence fought in the historic past. The second group of flags are those that have a certain relation with the Confederacy. The 3rd category are those state flags that were designed before the Union “membership.” And then finally there are the designs of state standards that came forth as a result of more local circumstances.

Before independence each colony had a seal and sometimes also a coat of arms, but none of them had a flag. However, with the call to arms, flags for militia units were produced, regional badges were invented, and uniforms designed. In many cases these influenced the flags later adopted as the state flags.

The state flag of Florida, for example, is a historic flag. It features a red colored saltire, on a white field. The seal of the state is super positioned right on top, in the center of the flag. The flag’s design was approved around the 1900′s.

As far as Delaware is concerned, their flag is hoisted nicely on American flag poles. Buff were the colors of the state militia. The flag was at first just blue, but the buff diamond containing the state coat of arms was added in the 20th century.

Montana’s flag is one of the worst designed flags in our Nation. This flag’s backdrop is blue in color and features an image of the state seal on top of the flag’s field. The current flag is hoisted on mainly home and garden type flag poles in the state. It was adopted some seven years ago.

The state flag of New Hampshire consists of a blue field, with on top the state emblem. It has been flying around from state flagpoles. It was adopted back in ’09.

Another one is the flag hoisted on Virginian flag poles, which displays the seal of Virginia on a blue field. This banner was adopted during the initial part of the year 1861the year the Civil War commenced.

I take great pleasure in having been able to present a few state flags to you, which can be seen in different area of our nation hoisted on garden type commercial flag poles. Chances are that many state flags will change slightly as people progress.

Most commercial flagpoles reach heights greater than 30 ft and are made from aluminum.

The North Korean Ensign

January 18, 2012 · Posted in Asia · Comment 

The passing of the North Korean leader came as a surprise to many in and outside of North Korea. From what I have been told it is my understanding that the death of the leader did not become public for a little while. I have yet to learn about flag code guidelines that are enforced and maintained in the Korean Democratic People’s Republic, as it is officially known. I would not be surprised if the Korean national flag is flown half-staff from North Korean flag poles.

The Republic has experienced better times, especially in terms of politics. Towards the end of the 14th century the so called “Yi dynasty” was organized. The Yi dynasty lasted years, decades and centuries, till the beginning of the 20th century. A few hundred years ago, China conquered Korea and established their rule. Before the division of north and south, Korea enjoyed great trade relationships with nations in the west.

Professionals describe the national Korean ensigns as a modern flag battle. These conflicts have occurred in many other places. Take Northern Ireland; the hoisting of the Irish tricolor on Irish flag poles for many years was considered a provocative action as well as a legal offense. In history both populations would fly their respective emblems on purpose during their parades.

The North Korean flag is hoisted patriotically on North Korean flagpoles. The design originated in 1948, in the same year North Korea was established. The North Korean flag has a similar use of colors in comparison to the South Korean flag, yet a very different design and use of elements however. The design features a number of horizontal stripes, some wider than others. The horizontal stripe in the center is red. On top of the red stripe a white circle is shown, with in the middle of the circle a red star.

The use of the red color is more substantial on the North Korean flag than it is on the South Korean banner. The South Korean flag has given more substance to white, which is the color of the flag’s background. Like other national standards, the use of colors is important. The red is for the revolution, white represents purity, and the color blue symbolizes progress. The red star represents North Korean leaders. It is not surprising that North Korea’s flag proportions are the same as former Soviet flags, and the arms are also in Soviet style.

The 2 Koreas have had decreased and increased challenges since the start of the Korean War. One war fought in history is in our day referred to as the “flagpole war.” For years the two nations would go back and forth in achieving new flag pole altitudes in the construction of flagpoles along the Korean border. The North Koreans eventually won by building a pole that is considered the third biggest in the world today!
