The Flag of Ecuador (as you will see in the following picture), is composed basically of three colors:
Yellow, Blue and Red
And right in the middle of the flag it has the national shield or coat of arms.
Below the picture, I will proceed to explain in detail the meaning of each color, and of its components.
Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America. It lies in both the Northern and the Southern Hemispheres, and is divided by the Equator which gave Ecuador its name in the 19th Century.
Ecuador borders with Colombia (North), Peru (South and East), and the Pacific Ocean (West).
Also, the famous Galapagos Islands (home to the theory of evolution by Darwin) belong to the country of Ecuador since 1832.
With 250 photos and tons of great information, this is an essential addition to your pre-Ecuador and -Galapagos reading!
There are better guides if you are only interested in the islands, but for a combination trip taking in Ecuador as well, it's hard to beat.
Small enough to fit into your pocket, yet containing comprehensive information and pictures of all the species you will encounter in the islands, this book is a must-have for nature lovers.
Let's face it, Galapagos is largely about the wildlife. This book will NOT disappoint, and you'll have a great memento of your time with the seals, penguins and tortoises!
Definitely NOT a tourist's guide, but if you're like me, and find the history and geography of the islands irresistible, then this is a title you ought to invest in.
Stunningly illustrated, and painstakingly researched, those of you who have been there will be enchanted again -- and those of you who have not will begin planning your trip!
If you're a seasoned Galapagos regular, then you will probably prefer something weightier.
But for first-timers looking for simple, down-to-earth advice on where to go, what to see and the best shopping and eating on the islands, this is the book for you.
Small, well-priced, and reliable!
The 10th anniversary edition of this photographer's tour of the Galapagos Islands is a stunning book, worthy of anybody's coffee table.
This is a perfect post-trip talking point -- a great way to remember what you've seen, and spread the word amongst your envious friends!
