My province has a rich culture dating back to the Middle Ages, when it used to span the coast from Belgium to Denmark.

This flag has been the icon for the province for ages, especially those heart things on it: the seven pompeblêden. They're lily pads but they have become so ingrained in pop culture that you see it everywhere, and often used as a heart.

The biggest soccer team in the provence.

Interesting article indeed! Wonderful how a few simple shapes can convey messages and emotions.
