Is that particular to the nopd ?
Jeez. Still there though.The one on the sewer cap is probably our greatest symbol of NOLA corruption. In the time of the New Orleans Machine, around the time of Mayor Walmaley, the only way to get a job just about anywhere in the city was to have political connections and get a job with the sewage and water board. You did so with an exchange for votes and you might even be accompanied into the booth. Oh yea, your dead relatives would have been voting too lol
Probably the most interesting history I have read of New Orleans was a micro history called Huey Long Invades New Orleans. It’s about Huey sending in the national guard and almost going to war with the NOPD. He had a machine gun set up in the Voters Regestrars office pointed at the mayors office (which was then Gallier Hall).
Turkey as well. The symbol is often associated with Islam, but it actually predates the religion by as much as a couple thousand years.I believe the Tunisian flag involves a star and crescent; just in a slightly different orientation.
