This is a funny truck I pictured in New York.
I noticed that here in US you can find US flags everywhere. Someone told me that it is so after 9/11. I guess the flag has become the symbol of “United we stand”.
In Italy luckily we try to stand united behind the peace flag.
According to bandieredipace.org, in Italy 2.500.000 balconies were exposing the peace flag at 03/17/2003.
You can see some galleries of peace flags around the world here and here and here and here and here and
You can even upload your picture.
There is also useful material (mainly in Italian) such as banners, images, backgrounds.
However of course not all the people in Italy agree about exposing the peace flag. Some people even claim that it is equivalent to the communist flag. And in fact there is someone that, in a book, is asking ironically “Are all of them dirty communists?”
Speaking of flags, you can see on my sidebar that I used the UN flag as the icon representing all the languages. It is both a wish and an encouragement.
