Awesome Photo: Libyan Mission to the UN Now Flies the Opposition Flag

February 26, 2011

With the Libyan mission to the United NationsĀ officially defected from dictator Muammar Gaddafi, saying it belongs to "the Libyan people," officials held a flag changing ceremony today at their offices in Manhattan.

By removing the old plain-green banner, which was adopted in 1977, and installing the nation's former flag, the mission now publicly supports the opposition movement.
