  flamboyant style. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Although these free-flowing patterns in lines of double curvature originated in the English Decorated Gothic (early 14th cent.), the French adopted them as the basis of a lavish style quite different from the English original.
Flamboyant works exhibit pronounced freedom and exuberance, created by high, attenuated proportions, accumulated and elaborate traceries, and many crockets, pinnacles, and canopied niches.
It is believed that the style first appeared in the west facade of the cathedral at Rouen (1370); its culmination is in the Church of St. Maclou, Rouen (1437–50).

 Delonix Regia - Flamboyant.
Flamboyant or royal poinciana as it is called, blooms in dense clusters and burst into scarlet orange blossoms.
The tree of flamboyant is often more that 40 feet high with wide spreading branches from a domed top, sometimes even reaching the ground.
Flamboyant is hardy to 35° F., althought there are reports that it can survive temperatures down to 25° F. Royal poinciana can also be grown in a very large container and it can probably also be used for bonsai.

 Amazon.com: Flamboyant : A Novel: Books   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Flamboyant, a homeless, 15-year-old prostitute?vulnerable but guarded by her street smarts and acerbic charm?encounters Chana, a naive, frumpy, Orthodox Jewish schoolteacher who has recently been assigned to the Harvey Milk School in downtown Manhattan.
In Flamboyant, the author takes her protagonist from a closed society, thrusting her into an alien world whose values are antithetical to everything she believes.
Deftly alternating between the diaries of Chana and Flamboyant, who each narrates the story from her own perspective in a distinctive, authentic voice, the novel careens toward the inevitable clash between the world in which Chana lives and her deepening commitment to Flamboyant and the school.

Some gay-rights advocates are concerned that the mid-May celebration of the nation's first same-sex marriages could make future political fights more difficult if the expected horde of international media focuses on unorthodox weddings.
The nation's first court-sanctioned, same-sex weddings are set to become legal on May 17, the day when cities and towns across Massachusetts can begin accepting applications for marriage licenses for gay and lesbian couples.
The earliest that the amendment, which also would legalize civil unions, could go before voters is in November 2006 -- more than two years after same-sex weddings will have begun.

Once again Neil and Pete outdo a great single, "Flamboyant" (a slightly different version than the one on PopArt I might add..) with "I Didn't Get Where I am Today": all sounding like a campy Electronic/New Order song with lots of drive and upbeat choruses.
"Flamboyant", the first track on this 2 track single the boys show all the "neo" new wave kids how it's done.
It's a bit odd that a duo as original as PSB would sample somebody else's work, but "I Didn't Get Where I Am Today" is a catchy track that's strong enough to be released as a single by itself.

Oscar S. Wyatt Jr., the flamboyant Texas oil trader who flaunted his close ties to the regime of Saddam Hussein, was indicted yesterday in federal court in New York on charges that he paid millions of dollars in kickbacks to the regime to sell Iraqi oil under a United Nations program.
Wyatt was informed by Iraqi officials sometime in the fall of 2000 that he and other traders would have to begin paying secret surcharges to continue to be granted the right to sell Iraqi oil under the United Nations oil- for-food program.
Wyatt's profile was often just as gruff, standing in contrast to that of his wife, Lynn, a doyenne of the city's flamboyant party scene.

TBILISI, Georgia — Mikhail Saakashvili, 35, the driving force behind the protests that forced Georgia's president out of power yesterday, is a U.S.-educated lawyer who captured citizens' hopes with a bold campaign against corruption.
During nearly three weeks of protests, the tall, dark-haired Saakashvili has dominated the scene — speaking to supporters on the street, giving interviews in English to CNN and other networks, and meeting with visiting Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov.
Saakashvili's flamboyant manner and bold language make him far more popular with the public than interim President Nino Burdzhanadze and Zurab Zhvania, former colleagues who set up their own opposition party, the Democrats.
