These paper flags are found throughout Mexico on special occasions, draped over the streets to announce upcoming, existing or past fiestas. 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. Very colorful, very festive and very Mexican! Each flag is made of delicate tissue paper. These flags are larger than our other papel picado strings.
