Colombian Colors

His dad was showing him how to wave the flag.

The dad enthusiastically showed his son how to fly the colors.

With Colombia taking part in the beautiful game (soccer), I have seen lots of people wearing the national colors.

These kids were actually watching Celine Dion on a karaoke machine.

Soccer is the national sport and Colombians are passionate about it. They also like baseball but really, it’s all about “football.”

The three colors of the Colombian flag represent the gold found in Colombia; the blue seas, and the red blood shed fighting for independence.

That is the most patriotic monkey I've seen here. Doesn't even detract from the beautiful woman.

Colombia’s national day is July 20. Maybe I’ll see more patriotic colors then.

  1. Sadly, independence day isn’t a big deal here at all so futbol matches are your best bet at witnessing displays of patriotism!
