I rather like it (but I didn't put it out of my balcony ;) )
It's difficult choosing between it and the Rammstein avatar you had before ;)

I just saw lots of those in Rome last week and I quite liked them so I even bought one myself. Then I thought maybe I could use it as an avatar for a while.
btw I'm a bit worried 'cause I don't know what it really is about, maybe you could tell?

PACE means PEACE; they started to appear some weeks ago, people who opposed war to Iraq puy it out (proud to say there were lots of them ;) )

And just in case someone mentions to you that the rainbow flag is the symbol for the gay movement, don't worry - there is an important difference:
The Pace flag (Peace: it. pace, latin pax, fr. paix, finn. [?]) has seven colors. The gay flag has only six colors; the light blue is missing if I remember correctly.

I went to Madrid a few weeks ago, and I saw many flags like these, specially in the windows and terraces, but not just the flags, also many messages against war.

It was a surprise for me because here people had a position much more quiet.

I knew 'pace' means 'peace' (thanks to latin) but I didn't know the background, I thought it was some kind of an organisation or something. I was glad to see so many people were willing to tell they oppose the war, unlike in Finland (yes, there were lots of people in demonstrations but still, not too many, and most of them didn't do anything else. In Italy people really expressed 24/7 what they think and that was great.

As my name indicates, I am a greenie :wink: . I was one of the (to) few people who voted for Agalev, the 18th. :cry:
Saturday, Agalev has changed its name in Groen! . Hopefully, not for the next few months... :oops:
