OK, so this place isn't an architectural masterpiece, but it does have a flag...

Taken at the Eau Claire Market, downtown Calgary, AB.

Wonderful capture Toshi, the reflection of the flag is also in the window on the left. Nice job.

I like it! Agreed, it's not an architectural masterpiece but I really like the lines and colors. The predominant green (teal) color really helps the flag to stand out.

Thanks so much for the kind comments, all. There's a very neat little cafe downstairs called The Good Earth Cafe where we had a cappuccino just a few minutes before I took this shot. I took the following pic outside.
This shot's got a couple of banners in it, so I guess it's not too out of place here.:-)
