The Caravan Gallery - Flags

Flags may be displayed to denote national pride, particularly with regard to sporting events and royal occasions. They can also signal nationalistic tendencies, so much so that liberal citizens and the politically correct are afraid their message may be misconstrued, particularly following the outcome of Britain's referendum to leave the European Union. Some of the flags in this ongoing series seem to stand for defiance against all the odds, representing the power of the individual in their tiny, almost sacrosanct, domain.
