Read the description to the right of the image, first.

This is a piece of Slavic history that also represents UNITY, just like communism does to many of us. Many Slavs remember Svatopluk and his three sons. For those that are not familiar with Great Moravia, you can check the WikiPedia.

Great Moravia existed around 9th century and covered the terittories of todays southern Poland, Czech Republic, western part of Slovakia, Hungary [the Huns were not there yet] and upper parts of Slovenia and Croatia.

A beautiful Union it was.

It's obvious that Svatopluk's sons didn't take the Unity lesson seriously enough, that's why Great Moravia broke apart.

Will we ever learn from our own history ???

Description

Svatopluk explained his sons that in UNITY is a great power. He took 1 stick and broke it, to demonstrate the weakness in individuals. Then he took 3 sticks tie them together and showed his sons that it would take a great effort to break them. That's how he explained UNITY to them.
