This was so touching! It looked like the Salgueiro Banner Carrier wasn't going to make it. It looked like she was going to pass out and it seemed like she was saying she couldn't go on. Her escort got her some water. It seemed like the top portion of her costume was cutting into her shoulder. So her escort took off the top portion of his costume (you can see a women holding his feathers to the right) so the pair would still match and tried to help the Banner Carrier out of the portion of the costume hurting her.
Ultimately, they couldn't get it off and she soldiered on. I hope she made it to the end.
