Yellow Flag

I know you've seen the bajaj and the bus, but the reason I took this picture was because of that yellow flag inside the pot. We use yellow flags for telling people that someone around the neighborhood has just passed away.
Interesting. Why exactly yellow? Is it colour of sorrow?
Good question menggarang. I never thought of it before eventhough I've been living in Indonesia for many many years.
very unique local tradition...thanks
Why yellow? I'm not sure. Perhaps it was the only paper available when the first person set this tradition :)
