US Secretary of State John Kerry will visit Cuba today to raise the American flag over the newly reopened US embassy, a symbolic capstone on Washington's historic rapprochement with Havana.

The Stars and Stripes have not flown over the glass-and-concrete building on the Havana waterfront since January 3rd, 1961, the day the United States severed ties with Cuba at the height of the Cold War.

Accompanying Kerry on the whirlwind one-day trip -- the first visit to the island by a US secretary of state since 1945 -- will be three former Marines who lowered the flag for the last time 54 years ago.
