Zavikon island - on 1000 Islands - 3158

1000 Islands

 

Zavikon islands - with the world's shortest international bridge!

 

Have you spotted the Hungarian flag in the middle?

:)

 

If you're wondering why it's there, here is the explanation:

 

"Canadian islands fly Canadian flags, American islands, American flags. Julie and Don Rickerd of Toronto fly the American flag, the Canadian flag and the Hungarian flag on Zavicon Islands, which include a 1.5-acre Canadian island and a half-acre American island connected by bridge.

 

Why the Hungarian flag? Hungary was Mrs. Rickerd's birthplace. Elmer Andress, 77, caretaker of the Zavicons said the island name is Indian meaning "my tepee." "
