Private Swap - Postcrossing Stamp


Terschelling is a municipality and an island in the northern Netherlands, one of the West Frisian Islands.

Waddenislanders are known for their resourcefulness in using anything and everything that washes ashore. With few trees to use for timber, most of the farms and barns are built with masts recovered from shipwrecks. The islands are surrounded by shipwrecks, and even today many containers wash ashore that are blown off the decks of cargo ships in the North Sea. (source)

The flag of South Korea has three parts: a white background; a red and blue taegeuk in the centre; and four black trigrams, one in each corner of the flag.

The white background symbolizes "cleanliness of the people." The Taegeuk represents the origin of all things in the universe; holding the two principles of eun and yang; the former being the negative aspect rendered in blue, and the latter as the positive aspect rendered in red, in perfect balance. Together, they represent a continuous movement within infinity, the two merging as one. Traditionally, the four trigrams are related to the Five Elements of fire, water, earth, wood, and metal.
