Watermelon and Palestinian flag:
"Because it was forbidden to raise the flag, Palestinians used to and still do, take watermelons and cut them in half and just raise them, showing the inside part. The watermelon contains the same colors as the Palestinian flag: red, white, green and black. This way, they have challenged the occupation and its unjust rules. The watermelon, this oval greenish fruit, became a strong symbol in the everyday life of Palestinians. Small and simple gestures can inflict huge outcomes. Small and simple gestures yet creative and smart. The occupier knew the strength of it, so they used to beat up people and merchants who carried or displayed watermelons cut in half."
