Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
hmm. From your link (above) Jamaica's gov't designed a flag to symbolize the independence of the nation from Britain in 1962.
"The sun shineth, the land is green and the people are strong and creative" is the symbolism of the colours of the flag. Black depicts the strength and creativity of the people; Gold, the natural wealth and beauty of sunlight; and green, hope and agricultural resources.

As for the German Confederation, these two references color and "character" indicate various forms of flag iconography since 1848 denote which political groups have dominated the national identity of the people. The latter hagiographic explanation fits rather well --as the art historians would say, cautiously-- with Linder's understanding of "Romantic" idealism, doesn't it.

So now, "green" would usurp "white" except, well, that group doesn't seem to represent in that unity concept. At the moment, none of them do.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
