Today's PhtoHunt theme is Symbolic. I started hunting through my pictures and it hit me right away... flags! There is nothing more symbolic than a flag it can evoke a sense of pride, patriotism, anger, hope and so much more.
The United Nations flag, this was taken this summer in Quebec City which was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I'd like to think this flag/symbol gives a sense of hope to those around the world who live in war ravaged countries where Peacekeeping is needed. The UN does so much more than Peacekeeping, but helping in developing nations, human rights, education, health care and more.
This picture was taken in the fall during at tour around "The Valley" with my friend Tracey. I spotted this bucket of flags in a antique/junk store. My ancestry is British.
