"As in any language, Rastas also have words to express anger that are
considered curses. ... In some contexts, the term 'clot'
does mean cloth but, in this context, calling someone one of these words is like saying
they came from a blood clot and not an ovum, from their mother's womb." Rastas often claim the flag of Ethiopia as was used during Haile Selassie's reign. It combines the conquering lion of Judah, symbol of the Ethiopian monarchy, with green, gold, and red.
