Raise your Flag for Bónus

Mótmæli við Austurvöll 8. nóvember 2008.

At the protests in down town Reykjavík last saturday a person climbed up onto the parliaments roof to raise the Bonus flag. A symbol for Iceland’s international business hybris. In the introduction to Bonus Poetry on this web I wrote this last year: “Bonus is Iceland’s largest supermarketchain. It has an appealing logo, a pink grinning pig on yellow background. Many people think the logo should become our national flag. Starting with Bonus an empire emerged: Baugur group, now owning half of UKs retail stores and the crown jewel of the Danish merchant empire: Magazine du Nord.” So now you see how it would look like as a national flag.
