Junk Drawer 7/18/2012 - White Flag time

There´re some interesting things I have learnt about white flags that I´d like to share.

For example, I didn´t know the French troops fighting in the American War of Independence fought under the white flag. Welcome back.

White flags came to my mind because of this song. I think the lyrics fit with our situation, that one we´re not going to talk about here.

I remember in 1998, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York bought Johns' White Flag. While the Met would not disclose how much was paid, experts estimate [the painting's] value at more than $20 million.

If I had to choose a movie scene including a white flag, I think it would be this one from a Bridge Too Far:
