How to say FLAG in 50 languages with Europe in a Day!

The audience of the Eurovision Song Contest is made up of fans from around the world who love the show and are wild with excitement to be there. It is also a huge sea of flags – now there’s cue for a Jessica Mauboy song!

Colourful and striking, flags are often instantly recognisable as representing an entire nation, institution or people. If you’re like me, they’re also a great way to add some colour when decorating be it around your home, office, book cover or internet posts about travel – you’ll notice rather a lot of them here on Europe in a Day!
