Casa Presidencial flies provincial flags
President Luis Guillermo Solís really likes flags. Casa Presidencial announced that alongside the Costa Rican national tricolor, the seven flags of the country’s provinces also will fly over the president’s offices in Zapote, a southeastern district of the capital. Casa Presidencial said the provincial flags would stay up for the entirety of his four-year term.
“After having the flags of the Central American nations to honor our independence and that of the region, it is now time to place the flags that represent the territories that make up the Costa Rican homeland, since attending to the needs of these territories is the end goal, our principle cause as the government,” Solís said.
In addition to the Central American flags, Solís also raised the LGBT rainbow flag at Casa Presidencial in May, in what was likely the first time such an event has happened in Latin America.
