Flags covering the coffin of the former president in 1982 Eduardo Frei Montalva During his funeral, one from Chile and one from the Christian Democrats, donated this Friday from Carmen Frey, daughter of the former president, to the Museum of Memory and Human Rights.
The two flags were sewn in order not to be separated and the red phalanx, the historical symbol of the DC, was present at the funeral of the assassinated former head of state, thus opposed the wishes of the representatives of the dictatorship.
