San Sepolcro Italian Flag Throwers

Time: 12:30 pm to 1 am

Contact: Miranda Stramel · · 864-7550

Location: Peace Quad

Europe in the late Middle Ages was often afflicted by wars and the standard-bearing officers were those that led the troops into battle. These standards, armed with blades, gradually become real weapons.

In periods of peace, the standard-bearers would meet in order to develop and improve their techniques, and over time, greater emphasis was given to perfecting the routines and the spectacle.

And it was thus that the flag wavers came to be.


The group, made up of flag-wavers, drummers and trumpeters, uses hand-painted flags and wears costumes made by professional theatrical costumiers.
