Red, white and blue- Photos

Red, White & Blue – White signifies purity and innocence. Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue… signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.

The colors chosen this month are in honor of The coronation of King Charles of England and Commonwealth.

Before independence, Pakistan was a part of India and a former colony of the British Empire. Being a former colony, we have no happy memories of the British rule over our country and its exploitation of the wealth of the subcontinent. Yet as a gesture of good will, I congratulate the British people on their new sovereign and hope that he does as good a job as his mother did.


In response to Weekly Prompts- Monthly color challenge- Red, White and Blue, hosted by Sue W and GC

  1. Beautiful photos, Sadje. I love the bright colors and sunshine back light to them.
    We are still part of the British Commonwealth here in Canada, s yes to all your honest points on the subject. And I share your well wishes for the new King’s wisdom in ruling and his success. Great sharing!

  2. I am no Royalist and certainly no Imperialist but I hope that Charles will contribute something new and yours is a very magnanimous gesture 💜

    1. Thanks a lot! I hope so too. It’s for the British people to decide the fate of monarchy in UK. We have lots of problems of our own in Pakistan


  3. Thank you so much for taking part, Sadje and for your kind comments.
    My apologies for the delay in replying. I have a few projects on the go at the moment and am struggling to keep up. 🙂

  4. Lovely to show support. I have only read a little on how the ‘Working Royals’ support their country… I did not watch the pagentry. And have only read snippits. One odd thing that struck me was that it was mostly American Entertainers that sang at the coronation party…
