July 2, Curaçao's Flag Day

Blessed week blog--lover...

Its been a while, yes I know. Last weekend I received the photo's of Curacao's Flag Day that's I'm writing this new blog.

Curacao celebrates Curacao Flag Day as a public holiday.
Every year the island of Curacao come alive with various folklore activities and cultural events on Curacao's Flag Day.

Curaçao's Flag Day creates a heady patriotic atmosphere on the small Caribbean island. Official ceremonies and an extensive program of cultural events take place in Willemstad's Plaza Brion and the north-western village of Barber.

The flag of Curaçao represents the Country of Curaçao as well as the island area within the Netherlands Antilles from 1984 until its dissolutionThe flag is a blue field with a horizontal yellow stripe slightly below the midline and two white, five-pointed stars in the canton

The blue symbolises the sea and sky (the bottom and top blue sections, respectively) divided by a yellow stroke representing the bright sun which bathes the island. The two stars represent Curaçao and Klein Curaçao, but also 'Love & Happiness'. The five points on each star symbolise the five continents from which Curaçao's people come.
