Bland city! A horizontal tricolor – yellow, white and Band-Aid color. It’s a good thing Nicaragua got rid of this flag. But then the Nicaraguans took it back. And then finally got rid of it. In Nicaragua, getting rid of a badflag is like getting out of a bad relationship. Really, though, this flag’s popularity waxed and waned with the fortunes of the ultimately losing side in Nicaragua’s prolonged Civil War. Regardless of the politics of the parties, I’m grateful the side with more flair for flag design came out on top.
Hopefully this flag is gone forever. But with newly “re-elected” former Sandinista Daniel Ortega as dictator president, who know what wacky things are in store?
