Cuban flag flies in Washington for the first time in 54 years

WASHINGTON, DC- Throngs of demonstrators gathered to witness the raising of the flag of Cuba over the Cuban embassy, the first time it has flown in Washington here since the US broke off diplomatic relations with the communist country 54 years ago.

As American and Cuban diplomats stood side by side, three Cuban guards in white uniforms marched out of the building, attached the flag to a recently-constructed flag pole and raised it above Washington’s 16th Street, just three kilometres north of the White House, to mark the formal re-opening of the embassy.

The move signalled the latest, and most visible, step toward normal ties between the United States and Cuba. President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro announced in December that the two countries would end their five-decade diplomatic freeze.
