Railway Bridge over the Drin or Drini River - Albania

Drin or Drini River - Shkodra - Albania . Shkrodra or Rozafa Castle (unseen here) is on top of the hill to the left of screen.

Signs of Albanian Nationalism are everywhere in Albania with many flags/signs displaying the national symbol of the double headed eagle - Shqiponja The Albania flag was officially adopted on April 7, 1992. The design traces back to George Castriota, an Albanian Christian, and a 15th century Turkish general. He used the Byzantine two-headed eagle on his seals, henceforth the Albanian flag. Note that Albanians call their country Shapiperia, meaning "Land of the Eagle."
