  5. Stunning captures again Sandy. I especially like how the bottom flag is so bright against the dark blue. Really makes it jump out at you.

    Esse Quam Videri is NC's: "To Be Rather Than To Seem". A worthy aspiration, in my thinking.

  23. I checked out your flag's motto and in wikipedia it says...God, who transplanted us hither, will support us". Great thought for all of us.

  25. Great shots Sandy. Pssst, (just between you, me and all of the internet) for all of my life, I thought those were grapes on our flag. I always thought it was strange because we make some of the worst wine on the planet in CT. OAK LEAVES, duh, ACORNS!! Now I get it. Thank you for the Eureka moment.
