#FriFotos: Symbolic Meanings

Posted March 22, 2013 by Elica Sue in Blog

#FriFotosfollow is a weekly Twitter chat where travelers can share their favorite photos based on a certain theme. To see this week’s theme and photos, search #FriFotos on Twitter. Tweet one of your own and join in the fun! 

This week’s #FriFotos theme is SYMBOLS! Symbols can be shared and are understood in nearly all corners of the world, which makes them some of the most universal forms of communication. Not only that, symbols can be a way to characterize an organization, a feeling, or even an idea. Take a look at these symbols from this week’s photos and see if you can recognize them.
