the colours of africa
Over Christmas I had the opportunity to travel to The Gambia, West Africa, leaving the snow behind to bathe in the beautiful sunshine.
I was given a gift of a bracelet by a local Gambian who told me the colours represented Africa. Naturally I was curious as to what each colour symbolised. Here is what I was told.
Yellow represents the sun.
Green represents nature.
Black represents the colour of their skin.
Red represents their blood and how we all have the same colour running through our veins.
Such a poignant point.
