Photographer's Note

This photo was taken outside one of the European Commission's administration buildings in Luxembourg. It occured to me that as the enlargement with ten new member states will take place on 1st May, we will soon have a lot of new flags flying outside our buildings. But for now, I can start with a simple test: Which country's flag is missing - of the current fifteen EU Member States? (It is only missing because I couldn't get them all in). I can give a hint: The flags are always arranged in the alphabetical order of the countries - in the respective language of each country. This is what is called the "ordre protocolaire des pays".
And I promise it is not on purpose that the Danish flag is in front - but it helps the colourbalance, I find (ha,ha).
Tech: I ran it through NeatImage to improve the sky, other than that cropping to get rid of distracting lampposts and corners of buildings.
