    flare (n)

    Dear teachers,

    Would you help to me to make the proper choice of the meaning of the word in bold in the following sentence?

    He added that the activists appeared to be "members of the anarchist scene, who threw flares and fired tear gas at police.

    flare = a device that produces a bright light for warning, illumination or identification

    Thanks for your efforts.
