Cultural revolution in Cairo

Young Egyptians display pride at their country's revolution through art and music.



    While many question the direction and speed of Egypt's democratic transition, there is one thing the revolution did that cannot be easily reversed.

    It made being Egyptian something to be proud of and young entrepreneurs are making the most of that. From jewelry to mugs, if it has the Egyptian flag on it, it is selling.

    Mona Afifi, from Styletreasure.com, told Al Jazeera: "Designers were very fast to present their revolutionary related collections. The demand was equally instant.

    "People wanted to show in a different way to either going to the street or changing your Facebook status that they share the national feeling, so a good way to do that was just to wear something."
