Lesotho flag. The three colours have a meaning behind. Green shows we are a green land depending on agriculture and rich in green vegetation. White colour shows that we leave peacefully and blue colour is the sky as the slogen says we are a counrty in the sky. The traditional hat is in the middle in the shape of one of the historical mountain, Qiloane in our country.

The Basotho hut is slowly, but surely, being nudged out of the Lesotho landscape in South Africa by modern construction. With a roof of strong grass that lasts 20 to 30 years it keeps the inside cool during summer and traps heat during winter without a drop of water seeping through. This house is part of the Basotho Cultural Village where homes from the sixteenth century are displayed. Discover more at www.naturalhomes.org
