In this photo taken on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012, a hot air balloon decorated with the “estelada” flag that symbolizes Catalonia's independence, is seen in the middle of the main square in Vic, a town declared by the city council a "free Catalan territory" in Spain. Catalonia holds elections on Sunday that will be seen as a test of the regional government's plans to hold a referendum on independence, and one of the key issues emerging is the theoretical place of a free Catalonia in Europe.
