Physical Map of San Marino :
A small mountain land mass completely engulfed within Italy, it happens to be Europe's third smallest independent country. San Marino is positioned on the Appennines Mountains; the largest section of the country falling on the sides and the peak of Mt. Titano. The Mt.Titano, has three peaks, each of which are fortified on top. At the bottom of the slopes of the mountains, are plain; most of which are dedicated to agriculture. Climate of San Marino : the prevalent clime of the country is Mediterranean. So, the summers are warm and sunny and the winter months are pleasantly cool.
Location of San Marino :
The Republic of San Marino is situated atop the mountain of Titano, which is a part of the Appennines Mountains in the country of Italy. Italy completely encircles this tiny nation which measures no more than 24 Square Miles.
Flag of San Marino :
Officially adopted in the year 1862, the rectangular flag of San Marino is dominated by two colors: white and light blue (top to bottom). The two colors appear in horizontal stripes, equal in width. The color blue stands for the sky while white signifies the snow-capped Mt. Titano. At the center of the flag, sprawling across both colors is the country's insignia which is in the form of a shield which is bordered by two laurel leaves on two sides. Within the shield are three towers atop three peaks. Beneath the shield is a scroll with the word "Libertas" etched on it. The entire coat of arms is surmounted by a crown.
Flora and Fauna of San Marino :
There are only two ethnic races in San Marino. They are the Sammarinese and Italians. They are a peace loving race who adheres strongly to their ethnic roots. They are also some of the staunchest Christians.
Small as it may be, the mountain-nation of San Marino has quite an impressive economy for a country whose only naturally available resource is building stone. In the agricultural sector, the main products are corn, olives, grapes and wheat. It is, however, its industries like banking, electronics and textiles that rakes in the most revenues. Tourism too is a big player. Exports from the country include ceramics, building stone, wood, lime, wheat, chestnuts, wine, baked goods and hides.
