Two Flags? Did you Know?

Are you under the assumption,
there is only one flag to wave?

I was!

Do you know

every country

has two flags?

?

It’s all by design.

Literally!

<><><><><><?<><><<><?<><><><><>

One flag for War,
with horizontal ”bars” which represent
resistance and forbidding of trespass
(like gate bars on a road).

One for Peace,
with vertical columns which represent
”free flow”.
The gates are open.
The columns of the government are solidly in place.
