What happens in Euroweek: 1. The Flag Parade

So what happens in a typical Euroweek? The exact program varies depending on the host country, but over the years some activities have become traditional and happen at every Euroweek. This short series of blog post looks at some of these traditions.

The flag parade is the first official Euroweek event and it happens in the morning of the first day. Every delegation is officially presented with their flag and everyone parades together around the host town.
