On December 21, 2017, Catalonia held regional elections under enormous political and social pressure. While people expressed themselves by voting at the polls, the facades and balconies of Madrid and Barcelona were expressed by flags and symbols. How did the cities sound that day, what was being talked about on the streets, what symbols were exhibited from the public space?
