Palio Flags

Palio Flags

Annually, in the town of Anghiari, Italy, the local people celebrate the famous Battle of Anghiari on June 29th, with the Palio della Battaglia, a costumed pageant taking place in the main square. Flag throwers entertain the crowd with these colourful flags. I look forward to visiting Tuscany again one day soon.
