Hosay Procession Flag Night

Hosay processions by the Shia Muslims in St. James community started on Friday with Flag Night.

On this night devotees walk through the streets carrying multi-coloured flags accompanied with Tassa drums to symbolise the beginning of the Battle of Kerbala in which brothers, Hazrat and Hussein, lost their lives.
