One Word Sunday: Red

Debbie’s ‘One Word’ for this Sunday is ‘Red’. After my donkey’s whatchamacallit for a previous challenge, I decided to stay in Morocco for a while longer. Here are the taxicabs outside the Medina in Fez. The red ones are called Petit Taxis and can carry three passengers with room for luggage on the roof.

Red is a popular colour in Morocco. The red background of the flag represents hardiness, bravery, strength and valour. We were told that this was a welcoming reception for the king who was expected to arrive shortly for some traditional event.

  1. In all honesty, I will say I am not personally fond of red.
    I mean, it’s Ok and there are some shades which are actually alright.
    Wonderful photos Sylvia, wow, it’s crowded,
    I guess they are waiting for the King?

  2. That is some bright red there. Red is also a popular colour in Chinese cultures, symbolising good luck. Looked like quite a sight and experience there in Morocco. Hope you are doing well πŸ™‚

  3. Oh Sylvia!! I LOVE this post. Red has always been my most favourite colour. Its energy and drama always brought me a heightened sense of what is possible. I immediately connected with the symbolism of the flag of Morocco’s red background: hardiness, bravery, strength and valour. Isn’t it interesting how one word brings out so many memories, ideas and symbols.
