The normally easy duty of raising the flag turns into a problem for Sergeant Garcia when he discovers that Zorro has substituted a flag with a large "Z" for the fort's flag and the flagpole has been greased to prevent the soldiers from removing it. Monastario publicly reprimands Garcia and then realizes he can profit from the situation by secretly ordering the sergeant to pretend he was thrown out of the service in disgrace. This, he hopes, will make the people of the village take Garcia into their confidence and thus unwittingly betray Zorro.

Monastario has also sentenced two peons to hard labor in the tar pits to punish their obvious enjoyment of the flagpole incident, and Zorro decides to end this cruelty by tricking Monastario with Garcia's unknowing help. He accepts the sergeant's offer of help and tells him they will meet outside town, knowing that Monastario and the lancers will follow. Zorro then rides to the tar pits and frees the peons. He orders their guards to march into the tar, then tricks Monastario into chasing him back to the tar pits. There, the hapless commandante and his men end up like the guards, deep in tar.

Production Note:

The wardrobe department had an unexpected surprise when it received the lancers' uniforms back from the cleaners after the scenes in the tar pits. The combination of tar and cleaning fluids had shrunk the uniforms to the point that they had to be replaced, and filming had to be rescheduled until duplicates could be obtained.
