My new avatar is a photograph of His Late Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I, aournd 1959, in the throne room of the Guenete Leul (Paradise of Princes) Palace in Addis Ababa.  Just a year later, the Imperial Guard Forces attempted a coup while the Emperor was on a state visit to Brazil, and massacred a group of officials and nobles in the Green Salon of the Palace.  As a result, following the failure of the coup, the Emperor moved out of the Guenete Leul Palace and into the newer Jubilee Palace.  The Guenete Leul was given to Haile Selassie I University (now known as Addis Ababa University) to serve as it's main campus.  This is my favorite picture of the late Emperor.

Several people on the forums (I know of TheRoyalist and Caesar at least) seem to have changed their avatars. Would they care to tell us what their new avatars are of? Hmmmm?

My avatar is the Grand Union Flag, flag of the 13 Colonies/U.S.A. from 1775 to 1777. It is a British Red Ensign defaced with 6 white stripes.

ContraTerrentumEQR, plz tell us what your new avatar is. I assume it has something to do with France, am I correct?
