The flag

Omar Fakhoury

A flag is erected on Dalieh’s site with “the sea” in Arabic (al bahr) written on it as if the sea was claiming back its territory: Dalieh. Fakhoury intended to use political parties’ and the government’s practice of claiming neighborhoods, lands, and geographical “appartenance”. The flag was visible along the coast.
