Caption

The people of Selkirk, on the border of Scotland and England, annually celebrate elements of their history by riding on horseback out of the town and around its boundaries.

The main day starts at 4 am when a Flute Band rouses the Provest and The Standard Bearer. Then follows a series of marches, ceremonies, singing and horse riding, culminating in a flag ceremony, the "Casting of the Colours", in Market Square just before lunch time.

The full story in panoramas is here.
