A flag

We were walking up a snowy mountain on this cold Sunday morning in a small town in western Germany.

Half way up the mountain, there was a blue flag with 12 stars waving on a silver pole in front of a private home.

The sun was shining brightly. And in the valley, church bells were ringing.

German flags almost never wave in front of private homes in Germany.

Photo please, Julien.

Didn't have my camera with me, which is a pity because it was a nice picture indeed.

Insert obvious comment about the social appropriateness of national pride in Germany here.
