Man lays wreath at stone memorial on Independence Day, August 17, 1986

A Balinese man formally dressed in white pants and a red jacket and hat bends over to lay a flower wreath at a stone memorial during a ceremony for Indonesia's Independence Day, August 17, 1986. The man's outfit is coordinated to match the Indonesian flag: red on top and white on the bottom half.The man and memorial are surrounded by Indonesian flag and palm leaf decorations, and a large crowd of spectators watches the ceremony from behind. The top of the stone memorial, which is wrapped in the middle with white cloth, is not visible, but the marker is dedicated to the Indonesian national heroes who fought for Independence from the Dutch in 1945 after World War II.
