Description of the Flag

From The New York Review:

A yellow-field flag with the anti-mafia slogan (in Italian): "vedo, sento, parlo" [English: "I see, I hear, I speak"] and a picture of Lea Garofalo, at her funeral in Milan, Italy, (c. Oct. 19, 2013). She exposed many shocking details of the 'Ndrangheta (mafia-like criminal organization). Although she was killed in Nov. 2009, her hidden remains were not discovered until several years later and buried in Oct. 2013. [This slogan echoes that of Roman general Julius Caesar, who in 47 BC wrote: "veni, vidi, vici" ("I came, I saw, I captured") regarding one of his military exploits.]
