This beautiful photo of a forest in Lithuania perfectly captures the national Lithuanian flag‘s colors – yellow, green and red – in its autumn leaves. The photo was taken by Saulius Stankevičius near the town of Šilutė, who insists that the colors were not Photoshopped. Traditionally, the flag’s colors are said to represent the nation’s sunlight (yellow), forests and fields (green), and the blood of its people (red). (Image source: Saulius Stankevičius)
