When I saw this flag, I knew I wanted a good photo of it, but never really processed it until now. This was taken on a photowalk that the Guyana Photographer’s Facebook group did in January of 2013.
I think I agree with Nikhil that my definitive photograph involving Jhandi flags was this one from last year’s Deck Project, but if you’re going to photograph along the coastlands of Guyana, you most likely will end up with Jhandi flags in some images.
I don’t see the Black ones as often as I see the Red, Yellow and White ones.

Interesting, you really don’t see those black ones very often. I wonder if there is some special meaning (my discorporeal and very Hindu grandmother is probably trying hard to thump me in the head right now :).
I’m sure she is. I neglected to ask about it prior to publishing this 🙂
Do let us know when you find out. I am wondering if it had anything to do with a death in the family. The other colors I guess symbolize life, Happiness, Thankfulness and Fruitfulness. Also may be it is not Hindu but Kali related????
