Albania. Tirana. A butcher in his shop. On the counter, a piggy bank with the written words " My first bank" and the Albanian flag. The flag of Albania is a red flag with a silhouetted black double-headed eagle in the center. The red stands for bravery, strength and valor, while the double-headed eagle represents the sovereign state of Albania. The flag was first adopted as the national flag of modern Albania in 1912. Tirana is the capital and most populous city of the Republic of Albania. The city is also the capital of the surrounding county of Tirana, one of 12 constituent counties of the country. 20.5.2018 © 2018 Didier Ruef
