Photographer's Note

When I recently visited Whitby, I searched for some blue and yellow theme which I could use as an excuse to show my support for Ukraine. Ironically, this scene which I found here is closer with its color theme to the flag of Russia than Ukraine. I have tried to convert the red color to yellow but I didn稚 manage to achieve a satisfactory effect, so I kept the colors as I found them.
Luckily for me red/white/blue are actually colors of many flags. It could be the national colors of Britain, United States, France, or Netherlands In fact, when I read the legends on the origin of the colors of the present day flag of Russia, I found out that they may have been copied from the colors of the Dutch flag.

Towards the end of my walk along the Whitby harbour I eventually found a boat which displayed an actual Ukrainian flag but it was unfortunately located in a not very photogenic setting.
