Sea of Flags

This is a mural in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago. According to the sign, it was designed and painted by Gamaliel Ramirez (with assistance from community residents) as part of the the 11th Fiesta Boricua in 2004. This is one of several beautifully colorful murals I've stumbled upon in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.

The large sculpture of the Puerto Rico Flag, shown in the mural, actually exists (see below) and arcs over Division Street.
