Life, Code, and Cool Stuff


The lunchroom at work has flags from many nations hanging from the wooden rafters overhead. Two of the flags have always caught my eye. One with a machete on it, and another with an AK-47.

I dug around a little and found out their respective countries. The rifle crossed over a grim reaper sickle belongs to Mozambique.

The machete flag is Angola. The ”Official Web Site of the Republic of Angola” describes the flag and proudly says, ” The cog wheel, the machete and the star are yellow, symbolizing the country’s wealth.” The Iraqi information minister must have been taken a worldwide tour helping communist nations develop the textual content of their websites.
