Flambeau carriers for Le Krewe d'Etat before the start of the parade in New Orleans on February 12, 2010.  While Le Krewe d'Etat is a relative newcomer to Mardi Gras, having first paraded in 1998, its practices are very traditional, including riders on horseback, flambeau carriers, and a heavy dose of satire on its floats as it parades on its uptown route.
