The "Cirque du Soleil (English: Circus of the Sun) is a Canadian
entertainment company, self-described as a "dramatic mix of circus arts and
street entertainment." Based in Montreal, and located in the inner-city area of
Saint-Michel, it was founded in Baie-Saint-Paul in 1984 by two former street
performers, Guy Laliberté and Gilles Ste-Croix."
From April 2 until May 5, the Cirque du Soleil is touring "Varekai" (which is a word from the Romany language which means "wherever") in Bogotá, Colombia. Sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varekai and http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/CirqueDuSoleil/en/showstickets/varekai/intro/intro.htm
On their tents, they show their flag, a white horizontal flag with the logo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cirque_du_Soleil_logo.svg) in the middle, in blue (http://img2.mlstatic.com/s_MCO_v_V_f_3611789756_012013.jpg).
