Kids, ternyata ada beberapa negara yang memiliki kesamaan dengan Indonesia, lho. Kira-kira, apa ya kesamaannya? (Kids, apparently there are several countries that share similar things with Indonesia. Ever wonder what they are?)

Monaco: Kesamaan Bendera (Monaco: Similar Flag)

Negara mungil di Perancis bagian Selatan ini, memiliki bendera mirip Indonesia. Namun, makna merah-putih pada bendera Monaco, merupakan simbol House of Grimaldi. (This small country in southern France has a flag that looks just like Indonesia’s. But, the red and white of the Monaco flag symbolizes the House of Grimaldi.)

Meksiko: Kesamaan Peninggalan Sejarah (Mexico: Similar Historical Relic)

Terkenal dengan Suku Maya-nya, Meksiko memiliki peninggalan sebuah bangunan bernama Chichen Itza. Bangunan tersebut mirip dengan Candi Sukuh di Karanganyar, Jawa Tengah. (Known for their Mayan civilization, Mexico houses a historical relic, a temple named Chichen Itza. The structure looks similar to the Sukuh Temple in Karanganyar, Central Java.)

Gabon: Kesamaan Hari Kemerdekaan (Gabon: Similar Independence Date)

Negara di Afrika bagian Barat ini, memiliki kesamaan Hari Kemerdekaan. Sama-sama 17 Agustus. Bedanya, Indonesia merdeka lebih dahulu, karena Gabon baru merdeka dari jajahan Perancis pada tahun 1960. (This country in West Africa has the same date of Independence, on August 17. The difference is, Indonesia went independence earlier, because Gabon got theirs from the French occupation in the year 1960.)

Suriname: Kesamaan Bahasa (Suriname: Similar Language)

Jika kalian ke Suriname, jangan kaget kalau sebagian masyarakatnya berbahasa Jawa. Menurut sejarah, dulu banyak orang Suku Jawa diberangkatkan ke sana untuk dijadikan pekerja kasar. (If you go to Suriname, don’t be surprised to find many of its people speaking Javanese. Historical accounts suggest that a lot of Javanese people were departed to the country for hard labor.)
