Glossary of Amharic Words
In each Girls of Many Lands book, each main character has a ribbon. This is shown in black and white as a border at the top of the page of every chapter. In the Then and Now: A Girl's Life page, the ribbon is shown in color. Each ribbon reflects the culture of the country represented in the book.
Saba's ribbon is two red stripes with a yellow stripe in between. A diamond pattern in the contrasting color is woven in each stripe.
