White vs. Blue In The Pool

White vs. Blue In The Pool

Courtesy of WOWSA, Seal Beach, California.

In a pool in Seal Beach, nearly all the white backstroke flags easily tore off. In contrast, nearly all the blue-colored backstroke flags remained intact despite the winds.

Why? Do you know? Can you guess?
