l'étoile rouge était un drapeau révolutionnaire dans les années 1830 en "Haute-Californie" (ou mexique ?)

pgogo said...

Maybe because it was so red caught your eye! Good!

VP said...

I think it has something to do with the band Rage Against the Machine...

teca said...

What's cool is that! Capture with the lens what the eyes can not understand...
Hugs.

Halcyon said...

It's a conversation starter. ;-)

Lúcia said...

Nice shot Randy!
I got curious too, according to Google: Zapatista Army of National Liberation.
Have a nice day!

Kate said...

Yes, a mystery. If you ever find out, let us know. Looks like the hood is going to get a new paint job or repair.

Sharon said...

Do you think it has something to do with the visit of China's President?

Jacob said...

Funny. I'd swear this is a Soviet emblem! Got some commie spies there in Santa Fe? ;-)

Looks like the mystery is solved! Thanks you Louis Gomez for the link to the explanation. Interesting find, Randy!

JM said...

The five-pointed red star as so many meanings... Che Guevara always had one on his hat but it wasn't red. :-)

RedPat said...

Very graphic! Seems to be the newest thing on the truck.

Looks like the star on my Berlin tee. I like the old truck!

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

good old one ...

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Very good catch.

Looks like something out of Havana (Cuba is notorious for having old cars as the trade restrictions limit their intake of newer vehicles) and the sticker looks communist. It is a Rage Against the Machine sticker (designed to look semi-communist). Great shot.

Jack said...

Isn't impressive that you can post something like that and within hours Luis Gomez has the answer?

MaCoBra said...

It reminds me a Heiniken beer... :)

1ondoncalling said...

Looks like a Vietnam flag...

T. Becque said...

Hmmm,now you got me wondering...

bfarr said...

Interesting.

NYC In Photographs said...

Great find! It looks very interesting on such a rusted truck.

Have a good day!

Allison said...

Nice bright color. But I'd have to agree with Ola...that's just what I wondered!

yas said...

It's cool. Nice catch!
Have a happy weekend!
