Flag Parade – 2018 Oktoberfest

Flag parade officially opens every day of Oktoberfest celebration, hosted by the German American Friendship Society of Pinellas County in Pinellas Park, Florida. There's a flag for every federal state in Germany. And here's a few photos of flags and flag bearers I captured during 2018 Oktoberfest, Tampa Bay's most authentic German Oktoberfest.

"The flags of the German states may come in different variants. All states have a Landesflagge (flag of the state, sometimes known as a civil flag), that may be used by anyone. Some states have another variant, often showing the state coat of arms, called the Dienstflagge (service flag or government flag, sometimes known as a state flag), normally for use by official government offices only."

Germany is a Western European country with a landscape of forests, rivers, mountain ranges and North Sea beaches. It has over 2 millennia of history. Berlin, its capital, is home to art and nightlife scenes, the Brandenburg Gate and many sites relating to WWII. Munich is known for its Oktoberfest and beer halls, including the 16th-century Hofbräuhaus. Frankfurt, with its skyscrapers, houses the European Central Bank."
