From seemingly silly garden ornaments to downtown City Hall
Flamingo = Ra, the Sun god, who ruled the sky, earth and underworld and could fly like a falcon/hawk. He had two kids, Wind and Rain. He worked his ass off (blood), sweat and tears, only to find out that simple humans turned against him. So he decided to poke his eye out (ring), put it on the BBQ and send this flaming hot help in the form of a goddess called Sekhmet to punish the simpletons (no, this is not a Dark Souls reference).
