Karenni Flag

Ei Hla and Karenni flag.
Ei Hla and Karenni flag.

This is a flag. It’s a Karenni flag from an ethnic culture in Burma. Karenni is the ethnic culture in Burma. I guess it means so much. It means a lot to me because I’m half Karenni and half Shan and it’s part of me. My dad is Karenni and my mom is Shan. I chose this object because it’s really meaningful to me. It represents me being half-half, me being a mix is a good thing, and I’m more diverse. This is my dad’s, so he would just put it up on the wall of our living room and it would just be there to represent our whole family.
