PHILADELPHIA — The stage here at the Democratic National Convention now has eight American flags adorning it — eight more than it had on Monday.

American flags were remarkably absent from the stage for the first day’s festivities inside the Wells Fargo Center.

Monday’s stage:

PHILADELPHIA, PA - JULY 25: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) delivers remarks on the first day of the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center, July 25, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. An estimated 50,000 people are expected in Philadelphia, including hundreds of protesters and members of the media. The four-day Democratic National Convention kicked off July 25.

At 10:33 a.m. Tuesday morning, a voice over the P.A. system announced, “Scenic flags are coming on stage to a permanent home.”
