These paper flags are found throughout Mexico on special occasions to decorate and announce the upcoming, existing or past fiesta. Papel picado means "picked paper" because it is traditionally chiseled while stacked in large pile...then each flag is individually strung on string to make a banner of paper flags. One package includes one string of 10 flags and the package is $2.50. Very colorful, very festive and very Mexican!
