Iron Maiden in the frontline of the flag war on Basque terrorism

An extreme nationalist Basque group, ANV, was recently banned for being the latest in a succession of ETA front organisations. In Navarre their political representation promote Anschluss with the Basque Country proper, and in a small town called Villava their councillors hung the Basque flag (representing the race, the feudal laws, and the Catholic faith) from their desks during meetings. The centre-right UPN responded by displaying emblems of the local football team, and the centre-left PSN went one better by hanging up an Iron Maiden banner. Check mega-hero councillor José Luis Úriz’s blog entry, this is my flag, as well as some some fine fan art. (Via Greg Luri)
