Flag of the Week – Andorra


I bet most people don't have a clue that there is a little country called Andorra – let alone where it is. (I looked it up)  It is a teensy little landlocked Principality bordering France and Spain with under one hundred thousand people. 

This flag goes back to 1866. There is a coat of arms in the centre of the three vertical stripes which represent the colours of France and Spain who co-rule it.

  1. Isn't Andorra where the wool comes from? Could do with a new jumper? I can't stand the sound of clicking knitting needles though.
