Flags in the Old North Church - Boston, Massachusetts


Inside Boston's Old North Church the flag of New England, and the flag of the United States (when there were quite a few less states).  The bold colors of the flags stand out from the pristine white of the ceiling and columns, and the pure white natural light coming in from the clear windows.  We always equate the Old North Church with Paul Revere's famous ride during the opening days of the Revolutionary War (see this previous post here). 

But it's modern day solace, quietly keeping the faith and the heritage, is just as monumental, if more serene.
