In Palermo recently, I stayed near Quattro Canti, an intersection with a 3 level tower on each corner. The towers of this church are layered with history and symbolism, fountains columns and statues. But on top of these there were also bright satin flags of additional saints or legends.
This one, in particular was from a flag depicting a small boy held up by a monk who was holding a palm leaf above both their heads. I don’t know what this story is exactly but I hope to find out. In the meantime I had to redraw it.
