Flags for Fenerbahce

Football (soccer) is the most popular sport in Turkey, by far.  The Turkish football league has teams from all over the country, and some from Istanbul. This year, Fenerbahce won the league championship and Istanbul is painted with blue and yellow flags.  Fenerbahce is a section of Istanbul on the Asian side, and I do think the density of flags on the Asian side is higher than the European side.

 There is a flag flying from the 2nd bridge, and from several of the beautiful homes on the Bosphorus, ...

as well as homes on the hillsides.

Business is booming for flag makers!
