WATCH: Madrid park carpeted with Spanish flags in tribute to victims of Covid-19


A MADRID park is carpeted with Spanish flags in tribute to the victims of Covid-19 in the country.

Volunteers planted the more than 50,000 flags in the Parque de Roma first thing on Sunday morning in an initiative which posts on Twitter say was organised by the ANVAC National Association for Coronavirus Victims initiative.

Dozens of people also staged a minute’s silence among the flags at midday.

Clearly visible from the M-30 motorway and the Moratalez district of the city, the idea of the tribute is to remember all those who have lost their lives to the virus since the start of the pandemic, and according to several comments posted by far-right party Vox, to highlight what they claim is the “poor management” and “incompetence” of the national government in managing the health crisis.

“The Spanish cannot forget the more than 50,000 compatriots dead and hidden during this epidemic who have been victims of the virus, but also of the lies and criminal negligence of the government of Sanchez and Iglesias”, wrote Vox party leader Santiago Abascal on his Twitter feed.

ANVAC is organising a demonstration for next Thursday October 1 at 8pm in front of 20 Government delegations and sub-delegations across Spain to call for “justice and memory for the 53,000 victims of coronavirus.”

They have called on people planning to take art to carry a candle to “represent the soul of the deceased” and a white ribbon as “a symbol of their memory.”
