One protester in the Turkish city if Istanbul managed to wedge himself between the windscreen and bonnet of a water cannon truck.
Out of the reach of the stream of pressurised water, he was able to unfurl a Turkish flag directly in front of where the drivers were sitting.
Anti-government protesters and police have been fighting a running battle for control of Istanbul's Taksim Square on an 11th day of clashes.
"We'll never forget what we have seen in the past few days. People bleeding on the street from rubber bullets and nurses beaten by police."
