Flag Wavers Of Castiglion Fiorentino

Live Music > Live Bands > Specific Music

The Castiglion Fiorentino Historical Group and its Flag-Wavers originates from the ancient custom of flag-waving dating back to the 13th century when, throughout Europe and particularly in Italy, after a special event like the end of a war, the standard bearers of the town’s military companies would celebrate such event by performing difficult exercises with their flags. The display begins with a multitude of colourful flags circling above, all bearing the town’s emblem. The exercises and the display may be performed individually, enhancing the harmony of movement and the ability of the single flag-waver, or by the whole group highlighting their team spirit. An extraordinary show not to be missed! The waving of flags is accompanied by the sound of drums and clarions highlighting the ancient military origin.
