Green Around The World

Amazing greens at the Eno River State Park in North Carolina.

I really like the color green because it depicts nature and its abundance which is found in this planet. It is a natural color that brings peace to our surroundings. Just imagine a world without trees and plants!

Because of its vastness, we can find green pretty much anywhere in the world but its meaning association may vary across nations and it is found in many country’s flags.

For example in Brazil it represents the royal family, in Bangladesh it stands for the lushness of the land and in Mexico it represents independence (beginnings) and now hope and prosperity.

Below is some green I have captured around the world.

  4. I love green, too! One of the best parts of making landfall after a sea crossing is the lush green, so refreshing and wonderful after weeks of blue waves.
