The front of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco. I liked all the colorful flags.

Not sure I see my flag there but it might be due for alterations as we prepare to sell off Scotland !

What colorful flags !! Wonderful framing and nice light. I can find some flags of neighbors. I wonder where my country's one is ? Of course, that's a joke. I don't mind at all that I can't find it. Have a nice day. :)

Fine architectural detail behind the colorful flags, and I like all the fluttering color, though I do wish the ones on the left weren't cut off mid-flag.
