White Flag ceremony for WOC 2010

Here are some pictures from the ceremony of hoising the White Flag. This is the proof of our environment certification!

Right: the ceremony opened and ended with cello musician Valentine Ash.

I was a little nervous that the flag would turn upside down or something, which of course it didn´t. Everything went smoothly!

All in all, it was a very nice pre- opening for the World Championship. Now we´re prepared for the real thing, which starts tomorrow. We´re all really excited!
