The Red Cross has a first aid station at Bryggen. Since 2013, the Flag Procession ends on Koengen. Therefore, the Red Cross has a station for lost children on both Festplassen and Koengen. Koengen is a more convenient place to end the Flag Procession than Torgalmenningen, and we hope this will lead to fewer parents feeling the need to string along in the Flag Procession.
