April Square Tops: Flagpoles

Looking up at the top of flagpoles in Arromanches, Normandy, France.

These are the flags of the nations who participated in the D-Day invasion on the side of the Allies. Arromanches is the site of Port Winston, an artificial harbor created by the British using truck bodies and barges. You can go down on the beach and see the rusted hulks being eroded away by salt water, and covered with seaweed.

You can also drive up a hill to see the Peace Garden and watch a 360-degree video presentation that is quite an emotional experience.
