This is coolbert:

Flags of Our Fathers! But much more than that!

USMC Iwo Jima and the famous flag raising. Consider also Sons of Flag Raising!

Without comment or further ado:

That classic iconic World War Two image of the American Marines [USMC] raising the flag over Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima.

Courtesy the famous British graffiti artist Banksy. I am not sure what the message [if indeed a message exists] is!

Once more courtesy Banksy. In this instance the message quite clear. American cultural influence pervasive and all-victorious. McDonald's the restaurant chain to be found all over the world.

What is described as masked Feteh Palestinian fighters raise their flag. The Palestinian people eventually triumphant over the oppressive Israeli?

Iranian propaganda cartoon. American, British and Israeli flags being raised. Please note those flags being raised upon a mountain of human skulls!!

 In the spirit of the season and good cheer to all.

Iconic American image from wartime as adapted by various persons for various reasons. In each and every instance take what you want out of it.
