when there are flags, there is a weak & frightened entity holding it

attempting to intimidate as a way of masking its own fragility?

Noticed the images from eastern Ukraine of the people attempting to re-kickstart a soviet republic, Donetsk as Donetsk People’s Republic..

Is it not that one common visual prop is the use of flags and a set of communal recognised colour pattern?

Given the fragility of the entities involved, it seems also that these illustrate how the amount of flags is a sort of indication how a regime, an entity, feels and senses its own reality.. The more prominent the symbols are – perhaps the weaker their supporters actually are, or fear to become..
