First set of flags...



Okay, so the show is Carmen. So, for the first set of flags they wanted something simple and yet gave the "flamenco" feel using colors other than red and black. It's a small guard and to make a larger impact the flags are a solid color with lace along the top edge. Using various colors forces the eye to scan the entire field to see the other flags, rather than flags being all the same and taken in in one glance. Color restrictions due to the band uniforms moved me into the gold/brown color range. It actually gives a rather rich look to the flags. These colors are repeated in the closing flags.
