Those are the colours of the Swedish flag. Hence, many things are yellow and blue there. As I was browsing all the various blog events I mentioned in my previous post, I came across Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue and Yellow. It was an older post from August, but I hope that doesn’t matter, as the subject really «speaks to me» 🙂
When you live away from your homeland, I personally think, one tends to become more … «obsessed» with your native country … that all depends on the circumstances, of course. I lived in Sweden for very close to fifty years and never paid all that terrible much attention to the flag … but I never forget the feeling when I saw it flying on the parliament building in Quebec. I’d been away for four years then, and the Swedish King and Queen were visiting.
So … when I saw a photo challenge entitled «Blue and Yellow» … I found that very hard to resist! 🙂
