Gina's Designs Heritage Banner- Trinidad & Tobago


 Friends, family and fun; the smells of curry and spices in the air; calypso music and steel drums playing in the background. To be a child again! Today, I can still remember every detail just as if it were yesterday. As an adult, all of these wonderful things are still a very big part of my life. 

On August 31, 1962 Trinidad and Tobago achieved independence from Britain. This month I will post various projects in commemoration and as a tribute to my heritage. My first project for this month is a Heritage banner made using Gina’s Designs Banner Shape Set. I chose to use the colors of red, black and white because they are the colors of Trinidad and Tobago. The red base represents the vigor of the land in Trinidad and Tobago, the friendliness and courage of its people and the sun. The black represents the unity and strength of the people, as well as the natural wealth of the country. The white represents the surrounding sea and the purity and equality of all people under the sun. All together the colors represent earth, water, fire.
