Doughnut Flags & Flag Doughnuts

Our latest newsletter, Vexilloid Tabloid #57, featured this high-calorie image:

The 39th Portland International Film Festival, the Northwest Film Center’s annual showcase of new world cinema, took place 11–27 February at the Portland Art Museum.  It used doughnuts—many flag-themed—to transmit the message of internationalism in posters, on its website, and in its trailer (from which these images were clipped).  Portland’s very own world-famous Voodoo Doughnuts provided the actual flag-pastries.  Note the excellent choice of a maple-frosted item to represent Canada.

This got us thinking about the intersection of doughnuts and flags.  Enjoy, but consume in moderation.
