A little history of umbrella......

The word umbrella is from the Latin word umbra, which in turn derives from the Ancient Greek ?????? (omvros). Its meaning is shade or shadow. Brolly is a slang word for umbrella, used often in Britain and Australia.

The collapsible umbrella is said to have been invented during Cao Wei in ancient China, roughly 1,700 years ago. The Chinese character for umbrella is ? (s?n) and is a pictograph resembling the modern umbrella in design.
