Photographer's Note

This is a mural to the Carnation Revolution that can be seen in the little village of S緌 Bartolomeu do Outeiro, in the same little square where there is a monument I've posted a few months ago. The Carnation Revolution is commonly known as the 25th April (1974), as it was the date the military coup took place, leading to the end of the dictatorship and the war in the Portuguese colonies. It was named Carnation Revolution because most part of the soldiers carried red carnations, many of them given by the people. It's a National Holiday in Portugal.
