Wave Your Flag
I like emblems of identity. I have both the Canadian Flag and the Rainbow Flag to hang from my balcony on the appropriate days. Now, I've got another flag. History buffs will know of the maritime naval signal flags. Used by ships as a code for various messages, they were part of a system designed to keep everyone safe and give notice when necessary. The flag above was used to signal ...
I am disabled. Communicate with me.
That little fact simply ticked me pink! I heard about it on the British Game show QI and then did a quick search to check it out and found lots of information on the flag so I knew I was on to something. My next quest will be to find a place to purchase one of these babies. I want to have it for every occasion and celebration. I can see it in next years Saint Patrick's Parade and even the Gay Pride parade. No one will know what it means, but it will start a conversation. And that's worth something.
For me, from now on, this is my Disability Pride flag.
