That's Merry Christmas in Russian. Surely there are a few Russian immigrants in Alabama and Florida who would appreciate the sentiment. Anyways, not all the Christian world celebrates Christmas on the 25th of December. Russia celebrates this holiday on January 7th. So in honor of the other half that celebrates Christmas today, we have the Florida Christmas flag. Basically the flag of Florida is decked out with the Nativity story of Mary and Joseph, hours before the birth of baby Jesus. Instead of the Native American woman with flowers, we have the iconic Christmas scene as the mother and father of Christ head towards Bethlehem with a star pointing the way.
fraternal flag twin of Florida is Alabama, the Alabama state flag is North Polarized into a Christmas gift. A big holiday bow has been added with a Merry Christmas tag.
It is amazing what a little twist can do to a flag! Pun intended. Alabama becomes a gift with white wrapping paper with a red bow.
