Flag

A flag is a piece of fabric (most often rectangular or quadrilateral) with a distinctive design that is used as a symbol, as a signaling device, or as decoration. The term flag is also used to refer to the graphic design employed, and flags have since evolved into a general tool for rudimentary signalling and identification, especially in environments where communication is similarly challenging (such as the maritime environment where semaphore is used). National flags are patriotic symbols with varied wide-ranging interpretations, often including strong military associations due to their original and ongoing military uses. Flags are also used in messaging, advertising, or for other decorative purposes. The study of flags is known as vexillology, from the Latin word vexillum, meaning flag or banner.

The Czech Republic has been blessed with a plethora of beautiful women and a landscape which has become the breeding ground of unique individuals. Whether the political climate is conducive to this capability tends to vary with the seasons. Nonetheless, the people are resilient and have managed to maintain an advantageous consciousness which few other places can ascribe to. Of all the places in Europe to visit, live, work, or invest, the Czech Republic provides more interesting capabilities than almost anywhere else on the planet. All I want is a passport and a plane ticket....
