Now..these flag billboards came to life shortly after the Egypt/Algeria Fiasco, and have only increased since. I'm not sure what they're trying to convey by them, because they seem to claim patriotism, and this definitely isn't what patriotism is.
I have never seen something like this in Egypt before, not in dire times, not in war memorials and ceremonies, not when egyptian doctors were being flogged in S.A and not when the ferry sinking killed hundreds, nor when at the beginning of this year the Arab world turned against us and dubbed us traitors and attacked our embassies in their respective home countries during the attack on Gaza..yet low and behold, we have remembered our sense of patriotism because of a football game. Not to mention that during football games the Egyptian flag nourishes the most, in all senses of the word.
Fine, Perhaps you need to remind people of whatever. You know what, at least do it right and don't settle for the first couple of flags that pop up on Google Images when you search Egyptian Flag.
The Arab Republic Of Egypt's flag consists of a strip of red, white and black.
In the white strip there's a Golden Eagle, carrying on its breast a shield with the flag's colors — but with a vertical instead of a horizontal configuration. The Eagle is facing the viewer's left, also known as Dexter, which means to the right of the bearer of the arms, and to the left by the viewer's eyes. Also known as the honorable side.
Just a thought..

The Business Insider lists the 10 most important commercials of these ten past years. They're all brilliant, diverse and quite impressive! Some we've seen across the years like Dove's Evolution and more recently Will.i.am's Obama "Yes we can", others were my first and I was absolutely wowed..
