Photographer's Note

in Germany we have a kind of ambivalent relationship to our flag and colors, for good reasons. Before the championship 2006 you didn´t see the flag very often, only on occasions which had to do with the government, and never never private cars were decorated with the german colors, perhaps only by narrow-minded nationalists. Then, 2006, "party-patriotism" was invented, and black-red-gold has become the usual outfit for football-fans. I have still my problems with it, I have still to get used to the sight of an ocean of shawls, hats, drums and flags.
