  • Hello everybody welcome back to Fan / Flag Friday. Hope you liked the Iceland episode. I got a funny story.

  • So remember the Geography Go! episode when Ásgeir took Jason and I to that secret hot spring?

  • Well the thing is we had to change into our swim trunks

  • But the problem was there was like a family of Polish people that were like kind of following us

  • And they were all like around us the entire time. And there were no changing booth.

  • So I was like: "Ásgeir, How do we change?" and then Ásgeir was like: "We do it the European way"

  • And I'm like: "What's that" and he's like: "We just change in front of these people" And you know by now

  • I'm kind of used to this kind of stuff like I've been to Finland and in Finland everybody's naked everybody's naked twenty-four, seven eleven

  • I'm not even joking it's a true fact [LIES]. However the problem was is that there were like kids playing like 40 meters away.

  • And that's like when my prudish American side comes out because I'm like oooo

  • I could totally get arrested for something like this in the United States. But you know Jason

  • and I were just like let's just get this over with. So we did it in the freezing cold in Iceland

  • I mean they weren't like staring at us

  • They were just kind of like minding their own business

  • But still it's just kind of weird to me that you know you're fully exposed in front of a bunch of weird strangers

  • and their kids

  • Ugh, Europe, I love you

  • but I- sometimes I still have to like process you. Anyway this episode's supposed to be about the flag and coat of arms

  • of Iceland without further ado

  • Ahh, Iceland, the land of fire and ice and the name is actually kind of appropriate despite all those memes

  • So, here we go. The flag of Iceland contains a blue field with a white cross and a thinner red cross inside the parameters of the white cross.

  • The blue represents the Colour of the North Atlantic Ocean [Wrong! It actually represents the blue of the mountains]

  • The white represents the snow and ice that covers the island most of the year .

  • And the red stands for the volcanoes of the island which could be found everywhere. The flag of Iceland is of course also part of the Nordic Flag

  • Family Group which all contain the Nordic Cross on them. Before they used this flag they kinda used like an inverted version of the

  • Finnish flag with a blue field and a white cross.

  • Also it's funny because in Iceland, even though you might not see a lot of people hosting the flag from their homes or businesses,

  • they take disrespect of the flag very seriously. It could cost anywhere from a fine to imprisonment based off of the action.

  • Now we move on to the coat of arms

  • and I'm just going to say this is probably like one of the coolest coat of arms

  • I will ever cover because, it kinda has like a legend behind it. The court of arms is a shield with the Icelandic flag

  • configuration on it. Surrounding the shield, standing on a lava block, are the four landvættir, or guardians of Iceland.

  • There's the bull, Griðungur, Protector of the Northwest, the Eagle or griffin,

  • Gammur, Protector of the East, the Dragon

  • Dreki, Protector of the Southeast, and the Rock Giant, Bergrisi, Protectior of the Southwest. Dude, that's amazing.

  • Four Guardians on a coat of arms

  • That's how I would make a coat of arms. Also keep in mind

  • Iceland was under Danish rule for a while so prior to all this they had a bunch of different flags and coat of arms often

  • depicting a silver falcon and at one time they even had half a fish with a crown. I don't ask

  • I just report. And that's about it

  • So you know what time it is Geogra-Fanmail-Time. By the way before we get into anything

  • I still have this hammer that those people sent from Portugal, and I love it. I can't get enough of it

  • I love this. So we got some cool stuff this week

  • And I can't wait to show you guys what you guys sent. Let's see who's country gets to be put on the spotlight this week

  • Nadia from Serbia. Hey Barb, I've been watching since the Australia episode and I love learning about the Spratly Islands in China

  • Almost every year my family goes on vacation to Aruba and it is awesome. And inside she included these Aruban candies and coins
