Mesfin Habtemariam was the most lovable artist. He is known for his design of the five tailed blue star on the current Ethiopian flag. He is one of the artists who founded the nation’s famous Amharic weekly- Addis Admas. His friends cherish their memory of him by talking about his artistic, real, unmaterialistic and joyful life. An article on this week’s Addis Admas by his closest friend Alazar Samuel relates about one interesting experience Mesfin has encountered with some Nigerian. Mesfine told his friend to tell it to the public sometime in the future. And his friend kept his promise.
