I have learned that there will be three bandas de gaitas (Asturian bagpipe bands) marching in the 2007 New York City St. Patrick's Day Parade. They are from Gijón (Xixón), Corvera and Gozón.

Our friend and member Antón asks that Asturians bring an Asturian flag to wave for the parade. That's a good idea.

Nuestro amigo y socio Antón pide que asturiano traen una bandera asturiana al desfile. Sería uan buena idea.

You can purchase an Asturian flag from AsturShop. The website is at http://www.asturshop.com/asturshop/www/indexen.htm Be aware tha shipping from Spain can be on the expensive side, so I udually order several items at a time to save money.
