Sinimustvalge, the estonian flag.

"Sinine ja must ja valge ehitagu Eestimaad!" (Lipulaul)
"The blue, the black and the white build Estonia!" (Flag song)
According to Martin Lipp's poem "Eesti lipp" the colours represent:
Blue: vaulted blue sky above the native land;
Black: attachment to the soil of the homeland as well as the fate of Estonians;
White: purity, hard work, and commitment.

So, I took my brushes, oil colours palette and hands to work!
(Sorry the pictures aren't very good, because the colours are being a bit distorted)
