Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

Cyprus

Patch of the Flag of Cyprus.  The flag of Cyprus came into use on August 16, 1960, under the Zürich and London Agreements, whereby a constitution was drafted and Cyprus was proclaimed an independent state. The flag was designed by Turkish Cypriot Art Teacher İsmet Güney.
 
The state flag features a map of the entirety of the island, with two olive branches below (a symbol of peace) on white (another symbol of peace). The olive branches signify peace between the Turks and Greeks. The map on the flag is a copper-orange colour, symbolizing the large deposits of copper ore on the island (chiefly in the form of chalcopyrite, which is yellow in color), from which it may have received its name.
 
The flag deliberately chose peaceful and neutral symbols in an attempt to indicate harmony between the rival Greek and Turkish communities, an ideal that has not yet been realized. In 1963 Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot communities separated because of Cypriot intercommunal violence. Since 1963 the flag of Cyprus is used together with the flag of Greece.
 
The current flag was created as the result of a design competition in 1960.  Under the constitution, the flag should not include either blue or red colors (the colours of the flag of Greece and the flag of Turkey), nor portray a cross or a crescent.  All participants deliberately avoided use of these four elements in an attempt to make the flag "neutral".

Jetzt sind wir auf einer langen Cacher- Reise, über Heiligenhafen , Puttgarden, Dänemark, Schweden und Norwegen. Wir haben uns im Vorab einige schöne Touren ausgesucht. An den meisten Caches war alles wunderbar und sauber, es war schnell geloggt und weiter. An manchen , haben wir andere Cacher getroffen und noch einen "Schnack" gemacht, das lockert die ganze Sache immer auf und man kommt ins schwärmen. In Schweden haben wir die meisten Travels gefunden und wirklich viele in Norwegen abgelegt. Beim cachen sind wir an viele schöne Orte gekommen, ob in der Stadt, in den Wäldern oder um die See´' herum. Durch die vielen Wassergebiete, gab es so oft nasse Füsse, aber davon lassen wir uns nicht abhalten. Auch auf manch einen Baum mussten wir hinauf, dort kam es dann auf das "Wie" an? Das Wetter war immer sehr gut! An dieser Stelle möchten wir uns bei den "Legern" und "Pflegern" bedanken, 14 aktive Tage liegen hinter uns, voller Spannung und Spaß!
An den Caches, wo uns etwas aufgefallen ist, gibt es eine Bemerkung.
Einen lieben Gruß aus Salzwedel ( D ) von Juma20 und noch ein dickes Danke!
