Kurdish performer Helly Luv (Helan Abdulla) shot the music video for her single Revolution in a village near Erbil, Iraq, during fighting between ISIS and the Kurdish peshmerga. (During the shoot she fired upon ISIS militants herself.) The video is an oxymoron: a pacifist plea to “Stop the Violence” that glorifies the anti-ISIS Kurdish armed forces. It is also full of flags — vexillologists may enjoy playing “name that flag”, especially towards the end of the video.
Here are some shots from the video:
Thanks to Vexillology Ireland for the pointer to this video!

The Kurdish cause is a worthy one to be sure. I hope the best for them.
