RED FOR COURAGE! Austrians tell of battle long ago of an Austrain duke who took off his white tunic and used it as a flag to lead his soldiers. The white tunic was stained with blood except where the duke's belt had been. YOU FIND THE COLOR RED IN MORE THEN 90 of the UNITED NATION FLAGS and for many of them red stands for courage. A soldier shows his/her courage by their williness to shed blood for their country.
