Austria, Innsbruck, Franziskamerplatz, November 2009

View slideshow (takes a few seconds to load)

The red-white-red stripes have been an emblem of Austria for over 800 years, making the Austrian flag one of the world's oldest flags. According to legend the flag was modelled on the blood-stained surcoat of a Duke wounded in battle. During the second World War, the Austrian flag and arms were banned, they restored in 1945.

Ardvanderlinden painted 800 Austrian flags on Franziskamerplatz in Innsbruck, the capital of Tirol. The weather conditions were cold and moisty, but painting went well and many people were interested. Some people came back a few times and went into discussion.

A man said that it's only possible for an Austrian to paint an Austrian flag. He disliked the idea Dutchmen painting his flag. Another man told us there are only a few good countries: Austria, Germany, Benelux and Denmark. The other countries only take from the jar and don't put anything back. Later a man had a question for us: "Do you know the difference between the Swiss and Austrian flag?". He ansewered himself: "the Swiss flag is a plus and the Austrian flag a minus".

When it got dark we started to hand out flags. The people of Innsbruck are proud to live in Tirol and feel indepent from other regions/ countries knowing they have everything they need in Tirol.

Mensenlieve Broeders,
Wat een mooi tafereeltje op de achtergrond. De bergen bedekt met een laag sneeuw, de kou die jullie trotseren door de handen in een te slaan en de universiteit van eenheid opnieuw te laten slagen. Blijf een fan op afstand van jullie werk! Veel succes voor de volgende belevenis. Verder veel licht en liefde gewenst voor jullie en jullie dierbaren en alvast een super begin voor een nieuw jaar, 2010!

Warme hand,
Angelo & Willemijn Wiegmans
