4 flags that show the sides of division in Cyprus

Cyprus Conflict

Cyprus is a multi-ethnic, and multi-religious ex-British colony similar to India-Pakistan and Palestine-Israel.

This Mediterranean island is plagued by unrest, war, and displacement. It is divided by a 112-mile ceasefire line with barbed wire and concrete for over 50 years.

It is a frozen conflict.

Our olives are the firfacst ever to cross this ceasefire line.
