Our Mission in Ethiopia

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

This is the flag of Ethiopia on top. Blue represents peace, the star represents diversity and unity, and the sun's rays symbolize prosperity.  The green recalls the land, yellow stands for peace and hope, and red is symbolic of strength.

The second flag is the flag of Uganda.  The national symbol in the center is a gray crowned crane, fabled for its gentle nature.  It was the military badge of Ugandan soldiers during British rule.  The three colors are representative of African people  (black), Africa's sunshine (yellow), and African brotherhood (red ~ the color of blood, through which all Africans are connected).

At the bottom is WOLD written in the Amharic language of Ethiopia.
