Provence - 2010 -- Num 21 Mpx - 5d2b_2493 - series Photo of the week


Early September - life resumes its normal course after the parenthesis of August.
And no doubt there will be demonstrations of new employees who are defending their tools or working conditions.
To illustrate some pictures taken during the demonstrations against the end of 2010 challenging the pension system.

I chose to highlight the flags, banners struggles, colorful and cheerful for darker subjects.

And a few short dictionary definitions Furetière 1690 :
To note that in this time the term flag was used at first as term of lingerie !

FLAG. who says old pieces of cloth or linen. The beggars have clothes made of old rags & flags.
Flag is also said ironically any fabric, anything new that has not the strength, kindness she should have. I do not want this sheet, it is badly sprained, it is too loose, it is only the flag, this flag is true that nothing lasts.
Called absolutely the flag, the old machine that picks up, and which are made of paper. There is such a mill that consumes every year for ten thousand francs flag.
Flag War in terms of means, Etendard, He usually says all signs. He fought under the flag of the General, he followed his flags. We took so many flags in this battle. It includes this sense macaroni & handlebars. This word comes from cloth, because it was once the signs of this stuff. It is said more particularly a sign of a Company of Infantry. It should be a soldier ranks under the banner at the first sound of the drum.
Flag also means the responsibility of the officer who wears it. King gave a flag to the old soldier, say, a charge sign in a company of foot.
