Skywatch Friday

When visiting the open air sculpture exhibition ARTZUID, we had  to go to a new built business centre of Amsterdam to find the start of the route. I passed these colorful flags at a square with benches to relax and thought it was put there as a tribute to the exhibition.
But shame on me, I now read it belongs to the exhibition and is an artwork made by "Pascale Marthine Tayou" from Cameroon. It consitsts 54 flags from countries of Africa. Each flag represents the national identity of a country but also belongs to the African continent as a total of cultures, people and communities.
We had a very blue sky that day, but that has gone now with lots of rain.
See for more Skywatches here.
