Whimsical Windows, Delirious Doors! #72

Here we are, back for your favorite little meme!
Well, it's that time of the year again, and we Israelis are on a crazy rollercoaster of emotions. You recall that last week was Yom HaShoah, our Holocaust Memorial Day, and that certainly wasn't easy. Today is Yom HaZikaron, our memorial day for Israel's fallen soldiers and victims of terror. And tomorrow will be Yom HaAtsma'ut, our Independence Day, the day that we celebrate like there's no tomorrow. Wow! Anyway, our whole country is decorated in blue and white for the occasion - I went on a short photowalk this morning, so I could better give you the idea:

This one is really impressive, it must have been a group effort:


This one is cool, you can still see the creases of the brand new flag:

I like this teeny tiny one, living in a planter :)

Well, those are my whimsical windows and delirious doors for the week! To play along with us, please post your photo of a window, door, or anything architectural, and link to it here in the widget. I can't wait to see what you've found for us this week! And for those of us celebrating, have a fantastic Yom HaAtsma'ut!

Thanks for this fantastic flag coverage.
Yom HaAtsma'ut sameach!

It's hard to find a window or door at Jerusalem's Yad LaBanim, but the architectural elements are unique.

Toby, I found Yad LaBanim by accident, wandering around on foot. It is around Kiryat HaLeom.
If you look down from Jaffa Street, around HaTurim tram stop, you can see the shpitz of one of the pyramids, and behind it you can see the Supreme Court in the distance.

I love your flag! A flag of independence and the ability to chart your own course as a nation, independent of ant not dictated to by others. Showing your spirit is wonderful, the blue and white stars...I like the 6 small flags draped along the balcony - arranged as a smile. Congratulations on a free and dynamic country!

The first two are rather very sad celebrations !
