Today I have some flags from Poland and Taiwan to share. First is the state flag of Poland with coat of arms, sent by Marta in July 2014.

Second is a card from Hsun in Taiwan, sent in August 2014. The card shows the flag of the Republic of China (Taiwan). Wikipedia says another name for this flag is the “Blue Sky, White Sun, and a Wholly Red Earth,” or as Hsun writes, “blue sky, white sun, and blood all over the floor.” The red part was added to symbolize the blood of the revolutionaries who overthrew the Qing dynasty in 1912.

The stamps on the card:

TAIWAN-taipei-101

That’s all for today, see you again tomorrow!
