Fun Flag for Copper

The Fun Copper Flag is based upon the flags of Cyprus, which is where the word copper is derived from.  The copper and green colours are based upon the flag of modern day Cyprus, as is the olive branch. Likewise the lions are based upon the old British colonial ensign.  Finally red is also taken from the Northern Cyprus flag as well.

The three lions symbolize that this element was known to the ancients, as it was in Africa, Asia, and Europe before the rise of the Roman Empire or Great Walls of China. Under the green lion is the Egyptian word for Copper, under the red lion is the Chinese word for copper, and finally under the copper lion is the English word for Copper.  Just above the olive branches is the atomic Z number for copper, 29.
