Flying the flag

25 March is a national holiday in Greece, commemorating the 1821 events that led to Greek independence. Greeks are very patriotic, and will even build a flagpost somewhere around their house to raise the flag on commemorative days. Here's my neighbour's flag, flying madly on a blustery day, amongst the scattered chairs and other objects which have been scattered about by a wind strong enough to cancel scheduled ferry journeys to and from the mainland...


  1. I've enjoyed seeing your photos and comments about Hania. That yellow air, especially caught my interest.
    Wishing you much fun with your blog, and welcoming you to the City Daily Photo family!

  2. I think that is good people fly their flag. Usually lots of pain and suffering goes before the flag gets to fly. Interesting.
