Iraqis stage protest against U.S. imposed flag (tags)
In the photo, Iraqi university students raise the Iraqi flag over their campus in the northern city of Mosul April 28, 2004 while demonstrating against the U.S. occupation forces attempting to introduce a new flag for the country. The unelected and U.S. hand picked Iraqi Governing Council adopted a new national flag (see inset) which consists of a pale blue crescent on a white background and has a yellow strip between two lines of blue at the bottom. Also in the photo, the Iraqi university students look up at their massive flag draped over a campus building. Critics of the new flag say it places Iraq outside of the Arab world... since all Arab flags use a combination of the colors red, green, black, and white. It has also been noted that the U.S. occupation imposed flag bares a striking simularity to the Israeli flag. The photo also shows Iraqi civilians burning the newly imposed occupation sanctioned flag (Reuters photos, Namir Noor-Eldeen)
