Flag / Fan Friday GUYANA + The FIRST BEER SENT!? (Geography Now!)


Hey, geograpeeps. Welcome back to Flag / Fan Friday. Hope you like the Guyana episode. Guyana is so cool because it’s like a little mini, India in South America, and the flag is pretty cool too, and you’ll see why in a sec. So without further ado, Okay, so before we jump in. I just want to say a very quick thank you to all of the Irish, French, Italian and Swiss Geograpeeps that have contacted me for the heritage trip that me and my mom are going to take at the end of this year. I can’t wait to meet some of you guys and I’ll be hitting you back at the beginning of June after I finished the Haiti episode okay, cool? All right, enough talk. Let’s jump in. The flag of Guyana otherwise known as the ‘Golden arrow’ is a green banner with two triangles protruding to the right from the left hoist side. The Longer Gold One with a white outline reaches all the way to the edge of the right side and the smaller one with a black outline Inside only juts out to about a third of the way The colors are symbolic. The green represents agriculture and forests, the white for the rivers and water the gold for mineral wealth and black for Endurance. Whereas the red stands for… Yeah, sorry I know you’re waiting for the bloodshed but Guyana’s independence actually wasn’t that bloody. You’ll just have to wait for the next one. Also keep in mind prior to independence, they used a variety of Union Jack Corner box flags with a Emblem with A 19th century sea vessel and now for the coat-of-arms. The coat-of-Arms includes a crest made of an Amerindian headdress known as Cacique’s crown, symbolizing the indigenous people, two diamonds at the sides of the headdress representing the mining industry, a helmet and two Jaguars as supporters holding a pickaxe, sugarcane and a stock of rice symbolizing Guyana’s mining sugar and rice industries. There’s also a shield decorated with the Victoria Amazonica Lily, Guyana’s national flower, Three Blue Wavy lines representing the three main Rivers of Guyana and the National bird, the canje pheasant. At the bottom on a scroll lies the National Motto: “One people, One nation, One Destiny”. Now any coat of arms with Jaguars on it is all right in my book. Alright. So that’s about it. You know what time it is? Geogra-Fanmail Time! Alright, so this is all the stuff that I got from last week Let’s just jump in. This is from hugo from the Netherlands, whoa ( ) wait what hey Barb’s?

  1. I hope everyone who sends him treats realizes that Paul can't possibly eat everything he gets. If he did, he would be morbidly obese by the Zimbabwe episode.

  2. Uuuh be careful with that beer, you got sent from Germany! It comes from Bamberg (Fankonia, which is actually Bavaria, but not really) and very very notorious for its "special" taste. Rauchbier means smoked beer. So it basically tastes like smoked Ham. Love your channel!!! Greetings from Hamburg

  3. Chengdu is a great place. Food there rocks. I just couldn't live there because of the lack of sunshine.

  4. The "I" episodes are gonna be hectic. You will have big and culturally very diverse countries like India, Indonesia, and Italy, then some political controversies with Israel, Iraq, Iran….

    Oh dear :p

  8. Just came back from Chengdu.

    Think Chinese city with really freaking nice nature to see and tons of places to get away from people. It's laid back much like how the US Midwest is laid back compared to the rest of the US. Take the old-style electric trains up to it if you can make the trip within the next year (they're being phased out with high speed trains). Also totally worth it to go to Dujiangyan: https://puu.sh/w58cQ/7a1c841bde.jpg

    Sip some tea at the rear end of it, enjoy the sights + wind + birds + water, then climb the mountains nearby. Oh and the signs are in Chinese, Korean, Japanese, English, and German.

  10. "Beautiful but takes 18000 years to master" – my thoughts exactly. I am terrified of even starting.

  11. Mini India? Would you call Latin American countries mini Spain because some of the population has Spaniard heritage? Perhaps Argentina is mini Italy? Like really, come on now.

  14. Hey, Barbs. I'm really sorry, but that isn't the parcel I sent from Germany. There are probably three bottles missing, two Astra and one Duckstein. But anyway. Hve fun with my treats!

  15. Hey I can't wait for u to come to Ireland I hope u don't spent all of your time in Dublin because most of the cool tourist sites is down the country like in my small home town of Birr, County Offaly in the midlands! Birr castle once had the biggest telescope in the world way back in the 1800s and it is still the biggest in Europe. Recently they built a new radio wave telescope which made the national news headlines! It also has the first fatal car crash in the world! This small town also kind of has its own monarch , the Third Earl of Rosse ! (Mostly known as Lord Rosse)

  18. Hey mate, I sincerely and truly appreciate you making a mention of Guyana. I live in Guyana in the capital – Georgetown. One point of correction, the name of my country's flag is the Golden Arrowhead.
    Keep up he amazing work. Cheers, Alistair

  19. Guyana a mini-India? Not even half the population is of Indian origin (it hovers around 40%), that means 60% of the population is not of Indian origin. Indian influence is strong but that doesn't equate to being called a mini-India. Guyana is roughly in the same bracket as Fiji (37.5%) and Trinidad and Tobago (36%). Guyana is in fact a multi-racial country. Please try to be accurate in your haste to describe countries with one catchy sound-bite in future. Now you will have many people who don't know better thinking Guyana is an outpost of India, which it isn't.
