The Flag of Spain


LO is doing a project for school on Spain for Hispanic Heritage Week. I printed out the flag of Spain for her to include with her report.

I'm out of town but have been trying to help her with the project over the phone. During our last phone call she asked, "Mama, what is that on the flag?" I told her that I was not sure what it was (since I didn't actually have a picture of the flag in front of me!) Her reply was, "It looks like the Torah".

While trying to stifle my giggles I explained that I was pretty sure that it was not the Torah. That's my Little Orieyenta for you - in her mind she sees a little Judaism in everyone and everything. Gotta love it.

What a good perspective...here I am, living in a Jewish town for the first time ever, and I (aged 26) still call my mom in awe when I see a kipa! I love it LO!

And isn't one of those symbols also of the tribe of David?

I does have that King Vitamin crown that they put on the Torahs...
