A field of sunflowers basks in the sunlight against the East China Sea in Nagashima, Kagoshima Prefecture, a contrast of yellow and blue evocative of the Ukrainian flag. As the sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine, donation boxes have been placed at several locations in the area to help refugees who fled Ukraine following the Russian invasion of their country and are residing in the prefecture. Local residents began growing the sunflowers three years ago to create the landscape. This year, seeds were planted on about 9 hectares of land after the potato harvest in May. (Aug. 6)
