Tall Flag Carrier



A tall flag carrier is part of the marching band auxiliary components that - together with other auxiliary elements - functions to add visual elements to the band's performance.

Different types of marching band have different auxiliary elements. A ceremonial marchng band, for example, might include a troop of traditional color guards; whereas corp-style field band would probably include a dance line.

The auxiliary elements of a marching band are sometimes collectively called the color guards or the visual ensemble.

I took this photo of this tall flag carrier girl practicing her skills at Bandung City Hall park a couple of days ago. I used slower shutter speed to capture the motion of the flag.

i have to say, after going through your blog today, you make me appreciate bandung so much more! i've been living here for almost 13 years now, and i was here for 2 weeks back in 1991. too often i focus too much on what is wrong in bandung and i kinda forget why i fell in love with this place in the first place. bandung is still lovely and i am still so happy to be living here!

thanks!
