Lion of Judah
This is the symbol of Ethiopia! It’s nearly everywhere you look, on monuments and crests over doors of public buildings, even stamped on coins. At one time it was part of the Ethiopian flag and many still prefer it. Again this is something that seems a bit foreign for Africa. Yet, this is a country that has a remarkably old history – and one they are very proud was never colonized. It was a part of the culture already there when modern historians showed up.So the Ye Yihuda Anbesa (Lion of Judah) is truly theirs.
