Today's Daily G.L.O.W. hails from a country founded by the Portuguese in 1680. Above you'll see their flag and a coat of arms.

Do you know what a coat of arms is?  Why are there coat of arms?

What similarities and differences do you see between the flag and the coat of arms?

What might the symbols on each represent?

Why did they use the colors that they did?

This country only has one border with another country, what might be on it's other borders?

Does that give you a hint as to the type of climate and geography that surrounds it?

This country is the second smallest nation on the continent it is on.  Any ideas yet? 

Make sure you use the Daily G.L.O.W. or G.L.O.W. worksheet to organize your thoughts, and good luck!
