Solidarity with Greeks (6): change
your banner or cover photograph
It is interesting to see how the flag of Greece has become the flag of protest in Ireland in recent weeks.
Flying the flag is a good way to show solidarity with Greek people in the middle of the present financial crisis Greece and the Greek people are suffering.
For the past few mornings I have been suggesting small but emotionally significant ways of showing solidarity with Greek people during this crisis.
But how do I fly the flag for Greece on my Facebook page or on my Blog, for example?
Changing your Facebook cover photograph or the photograph on your blog’s banner is an easy way to this.
If you cannot find that picture postcard photograph to show your sympathies, here is a variety of photographs that you can use. Each photograph is my own, and I am happy for people to use them as a way of showing solidarity with Greece and the Greek people.
Click on a photograph and it pops up in full size and then you can download and share it. These photographs are cropped so that they fit the proportions allowed for most cover and banner photographs.
These photographs are free to use and were taken throughout Greece. They include photographs from Athens, Thessaloniki and Mount Athos on mainland Greece, and from the islands of Crete, Spinalonga, Kastellorizo, Rhodes, Samos and Corfu.
There are no copyright problems using these photographs, but they are only for personal use and not for commercial, political or business use without my express permission, and I retain the copyright on each photograph. If you acknowledge any photographs you use as being my work, I shall regard that as an added bonus.

Eating out, a table for two:
And finally …
And finally, here are two photographs if you would like to draw attention to the fact that this crisis has not been created by the people of Greece but is an institutional creation:

4, On Sunday, I asked people to Pray for Greece, Pray for Europe.
5, Yesterday, I suggested eating out in a Greek restaurant as a way of showing support for your local Greek community and listed Greek restaurants in places I know, including the greater Dublin area, towns near Lichfield, Cambridge and London.
