dawndeeks Barcelona is obsessed with Gaudi but this area is nuts for Dali. With the vines for hair, he's kind of a dead ringer for Weird Al. 2w

dawndeeks The Catalan flag is four red stripes on a field of yellow known as "The Four Fingers of Blood" and there's a really interesting (although probably made up) story behind it.

The story goes something like this: Wilfred the Hairy was the Count of the area that would become the Catalan territories and he was fighting alongside the his buddy Charles the Bald.

Wilfred the Hairy was gravely wounded in battle and since Catalonia did not formally exist yet, it didn't have a flag. The Catalan troops were going back into battle demoralized, without their leader or a flag to lead the way.
But Chuck the Bald had a great idea...he plunged his hand into Wilfred's wound (no word on how Willie felt about this) and wiped it across a golden shield and, with that, led the Catalan troops to victory behind the Four Fingers of Blood. It remains the official flag to this day (but sometimes they add a star). The end.

dawndeeks Barcelona is not in Spain. At least not today.
Today is Diada Nacional de Catalunya, the anniversary of the defeat of Catalunya after a 14 month siege by the Spanish to consolidate rule. Three hundred years later, the citizens don't seem any more thrilled to be Spaniards than they were in 1714. Most everything here is closed and people are pouring out of buses from all over the region. Nearly 500,000 demonstrators are expected to form a giant V using the streets of Barcelona to symbolize the upcoming vote on Catalan independence later this year. Ara es L'hora! #catalunya #barcelona #independence
