White Flags for weddings

Image requried

White flags are put up by the family and friends of the bride ( and groom) to line the route of the bridal party on their way from their homes to the church (and also sometimes to the reception) . They are often just old pillowcases, torn bedsheets or similar but must always be white. They are put up the morning of the wedding.
The island of North Uist especially has this tradition but it can also be seen in places in the other islands
