The sekoula tree as a symbol

from w
Instead of arguing in Fiji about whether Fiji should be a secular or a Christian state, Alan Lockington from Lautoka who sits with his mates under a beautiful tree at Lautoka market to yarn and drink kava, the sekoula tree (flame, flamboyant), reckons 'let's just have a sekoula state and live in peace and harmony without politics.' I always think of those beautiful trees at Namosau Ba, and Lautoka and that's a dominant icon of the beautiful things of Fiji, not the snarky, double-talk of some politicians that dominates news.
