Stars, and stripes, south of the equator

 Among the readers of today's blog are citizens of Brazil and Thailand. I discovered that the flag of Brazil features stars representing each of the country's states. Sounds familiar does it? And in Thailand, on the other side of the world, the flag is red, white and blue stripes...red for the land and people, white for the  Buddhist religion, and blue for the monarchy.
