  Abstract:  A Palimpsest Image of December 1989. The present essay focuses on a special photo (credited to the American journalist Peter Turnley), taken during the so-called Romanian Revolution, in December 1989. My paper analyses the way in which the Romanian turmoil can be condensed and caught into a photo that seems very simple at first glance, but which, in fact, proves quite complex and complicated.

Keywords: Romania, December 1989, fall of Communism, flag, revolution, mythopolitics, Peter Turnley (author of photo).
