    [FONT=&quot]I don't know the way I should say that:


    "El rojo es el color de la sangre, de la religión y de los elegidos."

    [/FONT] [FONT=&quot]"Red is the colour of blood, of religion and of the chosen ones".
    [/FONT]




    [FONT=&quot]My doubts are about those "of"... Should I maybe leave them out? Or should I use another form?
    [/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot]Thank you!

    Protocolo,

    I think your translation is ok!

    Es que sólo puedes decirlo utilizando "of", en este contexto el genitivo sajón no tendría sentido. He visto muchas frases parecidas a la tuya, oraciones enunciativas que detallan una lista de términos usando "of" ante cada vocablo.

    Si eliminaras los "of" repetidos: "Red is the colour of blood, religion and the chosen ones", pienso que quedaría confuso.
