Indoors

Red Yellow Green

I thought we could use some warming-up now right in the middle of winter and a cold spell.

I don’t remember how exactly I got the idea for this photoshoot but I have always liked this colour combination. Of course, the Pan-African colours are red, gold and green, not red, yellow, green. But in my pictures, it’s very much yellow.

Red, gold and green can be seen on flags of many African countries today. The inspiration came from the flag of Ethiopia (the country which was not colonised by Europeans except the short period of Italian occupation) and the first country to adopt these colours was Ghana in 1957. Ghana was the first colonised country in Africa to gain independence.

I thought I’d throw a bit of knowledge in there, though flags are not something that interests me very much. Maps, on the other hand, I love. I can stare at maps for hours. Almost.

I think that’s enough rambling for one post, so I hope all of you in Northern Hemisphere are keeping warm!
