showing the flag
Posted by adiamondinsunlight on May 15, 2008
In January, Riemer Brouwer of Lebanon Update posted photographs of the Mustaqbal/Future Youth flag that had suddenly appeared at the top of the divided road leading down to AUH, AUB’s hospital. He ended his post by saying, “Now let’s see how long this flag will last.”
Well, it lasted about four months. The Mustaqbal flag is gone, and in its place is a collection of opposition flags: Hizbullah, SSNP, and Amal. Sorry the flags of the latter two don’t show very well – I took this photo rather quickly, and didn’t want to attract attention by fluffing up the flags for a beauty shot pose :).
And yes, there are four flags currently hanging from the street sign-turned-flagpole. I’ll let you guess which group is flying two 🙂
