Being in Paraguay calls the attention that red is present everything, everywhere, not only flowers but doors, gates at cities and inside the country
The answer is …
Founded on September 1887, except for the first part of the twentieth century (1904-1946), from its foundation to 2008 was the governing party in the country, being now, once more at the power
It is currently the largest political force of Paraguay, with 1,989,416 members, has simple majority in both legislative chambers, over 50% of people from last national census are party members
The original is that being a right party, is represented by red color, while the Liberal party (main opponent) has blue as representative color
Taken in a stret of Ipacaray, old village where people used to go during Summer and weekends to enjoy the lake

Salut mon ami du Sud,
Well, I'm partial to the color blue, but I can still appreciate red...especially since my favorite drink is featured on that signage and is bottled and marketed with that color, Coke! :)
And I love the rustic, textured red of the door surrounded by brick, a smart inclusion to complete the theme! Very nice positioning as well, the hanging branches shield some of the bright sun, and also help to make it feel as if I'm standing under the tree. This looks like a nice, quiet little street to wander...simple and unassuming, but with a charm an attractive features for a photographer. :) Bonne journee. Be good now! hehe

Bonjour, chère Maria,
La version large nous plonge délicieusement dans un lieu très agréable bénéficiant d'un charme évident.
Tout respire calme et sérénité.
Très bonne journée.

It reminds me of the song, the red car and the blue car had a race. It seems that red and blue often represent opposing ends of a spectrum, and so it is in politics too! I have to say, the ad for the burger and chips looks like any we would see in a big city, but its hanging above such a beautiful building. As you have framed it with the trees, it seems we are almost in a secret garden to view this scene, but a secret garden that has a very fine burger place :)
All the best

Red color when mingle with green and blue give a pleasent view, Maria, and not only on pictures.
Nice taken quiet street view, maybe on siesta hour as no one stroll around.
Nice taken, lavish green besides the fine red's.

Nice cozy view of a little bar in this lake side village. The red colour is very impressive and you have expressed in your well researched note why it is important in Paraguay. Nice natural framing with the canopy on top. Good title too...I would have never imagined red colour for a right winged party, but I tell myself that our knowledge is so limited in comparison to the vastness of the world we live in :-) Very good image with an informative note. Thanks for sharing.
PS. The village is in the state of Himachal Pradesh in Northern India. It is the last Indian village before the border with Tibet(China). Thanks for your comments and interest.

Maria, I really don't know..
what a charming corner with a red bricks construction, an almond tree, a pink bougainvillea and a colorful little restaurant, good light coming from the left side, bright hues, high resolution, thanks, see you

Hola querida Maria,
I like very much this quiet place for its old textures, the strong light and the heavy shadows. Red, green and brown are combined in an interesting and pleasing way and the blue of the sky adds a surprising, contrasting touch. The light and the colours look familiar to someone living in Greece. Your note is so original. Political parties in Greece are supposed to follow the traditional colour schemes but in reality the palette is confusing:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Intéressante perspective du mur en briques la lumière réfléchie du sol atténue les ombres.

I like the angled pov with the diagonal line of the kerb starting in the bottom left corner. Good sharpness with excellent shadow detail. The small burger shop with an outdoor dining area adds interest. The lack of people gives a deserted look. Tfs!

I guess to add to what you say, even their football jersey is red & white...I did not know the reason for the dominance of red...so thanks for the note.
A nice picture of the red door, the red sun shade, the red signage & the red (pink) flowers...works well

Le rouge donne une attirance certaine a cet endroit bien accueillant avec ce rosier grimpant, l'affiche me fait pensée au Mc Donald de chez nous, le coca toujours la boisson préféré, pas pour moi....
C'est pas en Suisse que je suis partie, mais en Autriche :-)
