Instead of a small representation of this most recent Flag of Many Lands™, instead we show this large version of the flag of the island nation of Dominica, 'cos how many flags do you know that have cartoon parrots as their coat of arms?
Not many, I can tell you right now.
This one is for our regular commenter and birding enthusiast, dguzman.
The cartoon is of the national bird, the Sisserou Parrot, which is still probably on dguzman's wish list of Birds to See, since it lives way the hell and gone in the Caribbean and is endangered to boot.
This picture is put here for dguzman in particular, in the spirit of interblogger friendship.
The original name of the island in the language of the original natives is Wai'tu kubuli, which means "Tall is her body". I'm not making this up. Sure, I could be making it, but I saw it on Wikipedia and copied it here myself.
Of course it's on Wikipedia, so somebody else could have made it up, but I don't play that.
Honest to Lenny.
This picture is put here for me and My People in particular, in the spirit of "It's my blog and I can put up what I want."
