Buhay Bohemio Shirts:
The Zion 1930 Shirt

Now this shirt is dedicated to my Rastafari brothers and sisters as well as fans of reggae music. Rastafari is not a religion but a religious movement that arose in Jamaica. "Zion" stands for a utopian place of unity, peace and freedom. The Rastafari believe that Zion is to be found in Africa, specifically in Ethiopia. Year 1930 is a special to them. It is the year Haile Selassie I, the descendant of Menelik I (son of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba), became Emperor of Ethiopia.

Green, yellow (gold) and red are colors of the Rastafari Movement. The Lion of Judah is the symbol of the Israelite tribe of Judah. To the Rastafari it represents Emperor Haile Selassie I.
