Flags at Hemiksem, Belgium. by ivan

Flags at Hemiksem, Belgium.

I've posted similar to this before but make no excuse for doing so again. The European Flag, not just of the EU, is flown with national flags outside official buildings in most EU countries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Europe

In this post-Brexit vote era, I wonder what Brexiteers think now. The £ in trouble, uncertainty about what the Single Market negotiations will produce. And now Boris Johnson, our Foreign Secretary, who argued strongly in public for Brexit, apparently really thought the consequences of leaving the EU would be bad for UK (his written words in The Sunday Times today). http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/editorials/boris-johnson-brexit-article-in-favour-of-eu-published-referendum-remain-leave-a7364281.html

And will Brexit in practice bring less immigration, as pro-Brexiteers believed? Increasing doubtful. Nor it seems will money saved on the UK's contributions to the EU go to the NHS, as was blazoned widely by the pro-Brexit crowd. This according to the latest from the British PM.

As the old saying goes, "Be careful what you wish for." What we have is a mess! And all of us, including Remainers like Tina and I, who believe in a united Europe, and travel there often, have to live with it. :(

Sorry, non-UK 365 Friends, no other outlet. I feel better now :)
Great shot of the flags and after those trees. A great find and capture.
Only future can tell. The rest is a speculation. I wander why is there no way return. Only a few decided for the lot.
