Dear readers, as you may have noticed I have been posting and writing about Kurdish issues in Kurdistan and yet I have failed to post anything about our Kurdistan Flag. As I woke up this morning to the first day of March, I realized that I have not written anything about this beautiful symbol represents me and my people. Globally, each country has a flag and often in every corner you see flags flown high where it is visually seen by everyone who comes across it.


Today’s introduction of one of Kurdistan’s beautiful cities is the ancient city of Mêrdîn (Mardin). This beautiful city holds one of the oldest architecture in the region and this is seen through the structure of homes, streets, museum, and holly places.The breath taking city lies on the mountain and surrounds the side of the mountain and its located in Northern Kurdistan (known to westerners as Eastern Turkey).
