Every seven years, the Catholic church in the Limousin region holds the ‘Ostensions’, when relics of the saints are paraded in procession around many of the towns and villages of the region. To mark the occasion the streets are decorated with flags and bunting, such as these flapping in the breeze outside the cathedral of Limoges.
