The Mozambique Flag

I learned something new today about The Mozambique Flag.  Did you know that the flag of Mozambique contains an AK-47?  Mozambique, which is location is South Africa has an image of an AK-47 on the flag which symbolizes the country’s bloody struggle for independence. The open book symbolizes the importance of education, the hoe the country’s strong agriculture, and the star symbolizes Marxism and internationalism.  

Wow, I don’t think California or New York would approve.  What about Chicago?  Maybe they should put a gun on the Chicago flag to represent the city’s bloody battles.  

What do you think?  Should the country do away with such a violent symbol of death and destruction?
