The notion of Stripe , which comes from the French word frange, has several meanings. One of the most common uses refers to elongated and narrow sector that is part of a everything . The stripes can also be strips , lines or girdles . For example: “A strip of the provincial territory is covered with water by floods”, “The dress my husband gave me is blue with two vertical white stripes on the sides”, “My son dyed a green stripe in his hair”.
The idea Strip, in this context, usually refers to portions of territory . The Gaza Strip It is a region that borders Israel , Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea . In this Palestinian territory, armed clashes and terrorist attacks tend to occur due to the conflict between the Arabs and the Jews.
In Africa , the Aouzou Strip was a matter of dispute between Chad and Libya . The international Court of Justice , in 1994 , ended the struggle to recognize the sovereignty from Chad on the fringe.
The Aragon Strip On the other hand, it is a sector of the Aragon Autonomous Community Where Catalan is spoken. This zone Aragonese borders Catalonia , and in fact some political movements claim it as part of the Catalan countries .
While the eastern part of Aragon began to relate to the concept of Stripe relatively recently, the origins of this link date from 1929. At that time, the geographer, teacher and writer Pau Vila he baptized the area of Aragon in which Catalan was spoken as Poniente brands . Vila, who years later would design the first Map regional community, tried in this way to give a unique name to this territory, which until then was not formally distinguished from the rest.
Years later, several relevant people used this denomination to refer to the current Aragon Strip, and among them was the philologist Joan Coromines . Similarly, other names emerged, such as being Aragon brands , the Aragon line and Aragonese Catalonia . Although so many different denominations have been used, they all indicated the same territory .
It is important to clarify that these names were created by the Catalans to distinguish the area of eastern Aragon in which their language was spoken, so that it was not a matter accepted at the level national It didn't have an official character. It was only during the second half of the 1970s, within the framework of the call Spanish transition, that for the first time the term was used Stripe to refer to the Catalan-speaking part of Aragon.
Over time, the use of this word to designate the aforementioned area of Aragon acquired other meanings beyond that related to the language spoken in it. In particular, today it is recognized as a Strip of Aragon to distinguish it by its organization in the political, ecclesiastical and socioeconomic spheres, and each of them responds to groups of slightly different municipalities.
Strip, on the other hand, can be a interval or one band . Is called time zone or time zone , to each of the areas in which the planet is divided land according to the time that governs in each territory. These bands are determined according to coordinated universal time (known as UTC ), which focuses on the Greenwich Meridian . The time slot of Argentina , Chile and Uruguay , to cite a case, is UTC -3: 00 (that is, there are three hours less than in the Greenwich Meridian ).
