Sky Watch Friday


Looking to the skies and seeing the Spanish flag, guarded by a cannon, flying over the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida. Why a Spanish flag in Florida?  When the National Park Service has reenactors on site on any given day, they fly the flag of the country those reenactors represent - if the English are represented they fly a British flag. :)

Flutter over to the Skywatch blog for all the great images each week.

Great shot and great commentary. Thanks for the education. I have been to St. Augustine, but was not aware of the tradition regarding the flying of the "appropriate" flags. Nice!

We share the same history here in Pensacola, we're called The City of Five Flags: Spain, Great Britain, France, The Confederacy, The United States. Great shot.
