Lowering the Flag

When we had dinner at the restaurant at the Gran Hotel on Saturday, I was able to observe a ceremony which occurs every day in the late afternoon on the Zócalo.  The enormous Mexican flag which flies over the plaza is lowered.

Because the flag is so large, it is rolled up rather than folded.

Once it is removed from the flagpole, the soldiers carry it back into the National Palace.
