RuPaul’s Drag Race season 13 came to an end on April 23rd 2021. In a Britney Spears themed finale, Kandy Muse battled Symone for top spot lip-syncing “Til The World Ends“.
During the performance, both drag queens pulled out a surprise element. Symone had hair accessories appear out the top of her head which Kandy whipped out a flag.
RuPaul crowned Symone the RPDR winner which was no shock as the season 13 contestant blew everyone away with her performance, outfit and matching hairpiece.

Kandy Muse flag meaning
Kandy Muses’s use of a Dominican flag is relevant as she represented her roots during the RPDR season 13 finale.
Kandy paid tribute to the Dominican Republic which is not only personally important to her but also provides greater representation for minorities on TV who, she said in 2021, are often under-represented.
Speaking to PEOPLE in 2021, Kandy Muse said: “I take pride in who I am, and being Dominican, I definitely incorporate that in my drag”.
Some Twitter users were pleased to see Kandy Muse use the flag as a prop: “Y’all don’t understand how happy it made me to see Kandy bring out a Dominican flag at her last lip sync“.
