Our Flags, Raised

Uniting
When we see flags raised, flashing in the wind: we see them blowing elegantly, carrying the pride of their nations. When we see flags raised, steady and firm in their hold: we see them standing shoulder to shoulder upon the same pedestals, soaring in the same sky. When we see flags raised, specks of colour dotted on the horizon: we see the sewn and embroidered cloth holding hopes, dreams and freedom, but do we know what flags raised truly show in that moment? 

A single symbol, a single beacon, elevated with pride; yet showing no shame, no scorn or disgust when raised with it’s fellows. A popular song comes to mind when seeing these flags raised, ‘Iss parcham kay saye talay, hum aik hai’ [Underneath the shade of the flag, we are one]. We are one under our flags but together our flags show we are one under the same sun. Our colours may differ, yet our speech, our homes, tell a tale more connected than ever.
