Andalucia Day

Today was a public holiday in Andalucia, commemorating the referendum in 1980 in which the population voted to create the autonomous region of Andalucia.
The proceedings started at about 1pm with the lowering and raising of the Andalucian flag on the balcony of the Ayuntamiento.

The Band of Olvera were present providing excellent musical support as always.
The local dignitaries were present with the town mayor Fernando Fernández, hands folded, centre front of picture.
It was a beautiful 21°C day, not a cloud in sight.

After a short while, the band led a procession on a short circuit of town while we headed to the Plaza de Andalucia to continue the celebrations.
