Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Here the official procedure in Spain (as far as I have understood it, I am only officially Spanish since this year and have not served here... Verlegen ...any corrections and additional clarifying input appreciated).


Izado de la bandera (Raising of the flag):

- In front of The King (CinC): Announcement (asking permission of HM to initiate act for the National Day Of Spain - OCT 12, the day America was discovered -  and to raise the flag)

- Horn signal: Honor To The Fallen!

- A group of the representative guard BN 
prepares to...

- (as part of the mentioned before) ... paying Hommage To The Fallen For Spain under the flag pole...

- Horn signal: Present Flag!

- A group formed of one member of every partial force (Ground, Naval, Air, Guardia Civil) in their force uniforms carry the flag to the flag raising group (in the vid NOTE: Navy carring the flag, the Guardia Civil representative is a woman, latter is traditional for one of the partial forces since democracy 1975; Order: Navy, Air, Ground, GC)

- Horn signal: Prepare To Raise Flag

- Navy and Air representatives attach flag to pole

- Mil personnell present: "Peloton: "The King..." (or "España..." or both ??), "Viva!" (cannot understand it in any vid)

- Horn signal: Raise Flag!

- Raising of the Flag with National Anthem accompanied by...

- ... Salute of CinC, Prince (future CinC), and Chief Of Staff

- Horn signal: Retire

View from the spectators:

... and what the public thinks (2008 it was rainig)...

...and, finally, what the fascist see it like (which every F23 gets importance again)...
