Residents of the Colombian capital Bogotá hang red rags from their windows and balconies to signal their need for help with food, on May 13.

“It’s not just city hall that has to act. You have to promote solidarity among neighbors,” says a mayor who encourages residents sheltering in place to hang red rags so others will know to help them.
