Patriotism by the meter

Today, on July 25, the city of Guayaquil in Ecuador was founded. Days before the entire city had already started preparing for the big fiesta. In nearly every street you could find flags of the city and the country. One day downtown my wife dragged me into this shop which sold cloth. I started taking some photos of the colorful scene.

In this shop they sold the national flag by the meter. This kind of patriotism is something that you won’t find in my home country Germany, so I actually like the idea of people proudly decorating their homes with a flag.
