  The 'flags' on the mountain
by easyoar

When you are in the South of Nicosia on the Greek side, if you look over towards the North, you see a range of mountains in the background.

It doesn't take too long to spot two enormous flags painted on the side of these mountains. One is Turkish, and the other is Turkish Cyprus. Being so prominently visible in the South, I can't think of any other reason to paint them there than for the 'benefit' of their southern neighbours. They are huge, and must have taken a lot of effort to paint.
