      • Yellow - Enjoying sunny days in every season.
      • Orange - A breathtaking sunset on a mountain peak.
      • Red - Fields full of poppies in Lower Austria in July for one of the best desserts ("Mohnnudeln").
      • Blue - There are more than 25,000 lakes in Austria, with the majority being of drinking water quality.
