The flag ceremony is held in the parking lot (I think it is officially referred to as the quadrangle) of the Bontoc Municipal Government offices. Each department forms a line facing the steps of the main entrance. An employee representing the department responsible for coordinating the meeting emcees the event.
Besides the obvious patriotic aspects, the flag ceremony provides a forum for the different offices to communicate important updates related to their duties. But often, the event incorporates a little bit of levity to help the employees start their week. So was the case this week as a couple of the ladies were called forward and music broke out from the sound system.
