Thanks to my good friend, Larry Schwartz, this very interesting factoid came to my attention. Did you know that the Moroccan flag had the star of david emblazoned on it? and the reason why they had it was because all wanted to lay claim on the ancestery of Solomon the wise King.
And here's a new word for you, Vexillology, from the Latin vexillum, which, in Roman times, designated the standard of the army, is the study of flags.
read and wonder.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
