Flags Under the Stars in Bibbiena (AR), Italy

Each year, the last weekend in July, a small but pleasant flag-wavering group meeting takes place in Bibbiena (AR).

This year it was nothing like the starry sky. Horible rain forced us to move event to a sport hall very quickly.

However, these not ideal conditions did not decreased good feeling and atmosphere. The ECF executives Gerhard Schlaich Vice-President, Stefaan Haesen – 1st Secretary, Ines Schlaich – 1st Treasurer, Pavel Kruba – 2nd Secretary and Ute Klockner – 1st Assessor were also presented.
