Face of Jesus spotted in a flag

A Catholic priest in New Hampshire plans to visit a Candia water park to see if he can see the face of Jesus in the park’s lifeguard flag.

Incidentally, the ability of people to recognize familiar patterns in random images, such as cartoon characters in the clouds, is a phenomenon of perception called pareidolia.
