Independence Day Flags
It's Yom Hazikaron today, the mournful day of commemoration for the 25-thousand-plus Israelis who have died in our century-long conflict with the Arabs. In a few hours it will morph abruptly from one of the two most solemn days of the year (the other is Yom Kippur) to Independence Day, one of the more joyous.
Israelis appreciate their country, and are proud of its flag. Earlier today I wandered around a bit and took some snapshots of flags.
