SANTA ISABEL FESTIVITIES

Santa Isabel. Actuación en la Picota
Santa Isabel. Actuación en la Picota

This is the name given to the festivities of 2nd July. However, there is no real relation to this Saint. It is believed that the relationship between this festivity and the "independence" of Elciego can be found in a festivity or ritual regarding the flag which formerly existed in Elciego.
The festivity currently involves saluting the flag. This flag presides over all the events and summarises everything else: the declaration of the town, the Coat of Arms, independence...
In a singular act, the flag is dropped from the Town Hall balcony and the Town Council Official carries it in a procession to the parish to lay it out in front of the altar during consecration, as a sign of worship and respect.
During Mass, there are dances with the pipers before the authorities and the general public at the Pillory (Symbol of Independence of the Town).
In the evening the atmosphere is predominantly for youngsters.
