Spanish Republican Flag

As the indignant marched along Barcelona's Passeig de Gràcia on Sunday 19 February, yellow and red Catalan flags were much in evidence. But the red, yellow and purple flag of the 1930s Spanish Republic was defiantly flown too.

How interesting!! Never heard of that flag before! As you see, I am back on Fotolog, but still not really happy with it.

I will show this picture to one of my friends from Barcelona, wonder if she will know it!

Hmmm. What have they censored now. We can only know by dextrous circumlocution. Or, better, sinister circumlocution. I'd never see that Spanish Republican flag. Hmmm. I'd read "Homage to Catalonia" and other things on the Civil War, but the flag never entered my consciousness. Maybe because everything was in black and white in those days.

Re: Lakeview Cemetery, only important dead people get the "lake view." There's no justice in this life or the next.

Another triumph for Fotolog's comment censorship system.

    Fighting the good fight for good language with the most effective weapon there is: ridicule. Photographs on our wall of shame document trespasses against clarity, inadvertent blunders, and of course the ineffable grocer's apostrophe. Come for the pics, stay for the comments.
