Thousands of flags have been seen making a “field of flags” on the National Flag before the swearing-in ceremony of Joe Biden as the 46th US President on January 18, 2021 in Washington, DC. With battlefield-like defenses, not crowds for guests and disturbances of the coronovirus, the swearing of Joe Biden as the 46th US president would be a silent affair unlike any previous inauguration. While Washington is usually filled with hundreds of thousands of supporters, celebrities, socialists and lobbyists, the US capital is quieter before Biden’s big day, which promises to be one of democracy’s most televised festivities.
