The enormous diversity of landscapes is a result of climatic and geological factors. For example, the islands of West Indonesia have always been covered with dense tropical rain forests, while the East Indonesian islands are much drier with even savannah landscapes. The largest part of Indonesia consists of low-lying coastal areas and coral reefs.
The ecological balance in the rainforest is seriously threatened by human activities or the consequences thereof. For example, logging takes place on a large scale, resulting in increasing erosion. In 1997, huge fires of rainforest were lost due to forest fires. The remaining forest area of ​​Indonesia covers approximately 60% of the total land area. This mainly concerns around 100 million hectares of tropical rainforest, the largest jungle area on earth after Brazil.

Wapen van Italië

The emblem of Italy is, together with the Italian flag and the anthem Fratelli d’Italia, the symbol of Italy. The emblem is often regarded as a weapon, but strictly speaking it is not, since the design does not take into account rules from heraldry.

The emblem shows a white five-pointed star with a red border, with a gear in the background. This gear is between an olive branch (left) and a branch of an oak. The two branches are tied together by a red ribbon with the text “REPVBBLICA ITALIANA” (“Italian Republic”) in white letters; the V here stands for a U in the style of ancient Roman inscriptions.

The star is an ancient symbol for Italy and has been a symbol of the Italian kingdom since 1890. The steel gear refers to the first article of the Italian Constitution, which states: “Italy is a democratic Republic based on labor”. The olive branch refers as a symbol of peace to internal and external peace and to Article 11 of the Constitution, which states that Italy rejects war. The branch of the oak represents the strength and dignity of the Italian people. Oak and olive trees are also characteristic elements of the Italian landscape.

It was only in March 2003 that the hues of the colors were determined and in 2006 these colors were adjusted to the current one.
