Hungary's Flag

The reason why the Hungary flag is red, white, and green is because Hungarian Coat of Arms. The colors indicate strength (red), faithfulness (white) and hope (green). Some say that the red represent the blood shed in battles, green meaning the beautiful land of Hungary, and white indicating the rivers, and freedom in Hungary.

Why did the Hungarians move?

They left Hungary because of the failed revolutionary efforts to break away from conquerors, international war, and overpopulation during peacetime. Basically, they weren't happy with the way Hungary was working, and there was no peace. Also, they wanted more job opportunities, like working in a factory.

Analysis

I learned that Hungarian people came because of the failed revolutionary efforts to break away from conquerors, international war, and overpopulation during peacetime. They also left because they wanted more job opportunities. Most Hungarians are Roman Catholic. The people that came to America tried to keep most of their tradition by speaking their own language, doing their own customs, cook the foods they eat, and dress like they did in Hungary. They moved mainly around the East Coast, near San Antonio. Many of the most successful artists, lawyers, doctors, composers, and authors came from Hungary. When the Hungarians came to Texas the earned very little money, now they have helped fuel the industrial growth and expansion.
