What a party!The Belgians crowned a new king (although not all are impressed with royalty and the cost of royalty in this small country) on July 21st, 2013.
There were parades, food, military displays and EU (European Union) displays, to name but a few events. What I found interesting and colorful were the flag bearers who carried a flag from each of the EU nations and marched up and down from the royal palace to the palace of justice. They twirled the flags and threw them up in the air, usually catching them.
