August 15th is the Acadian National Day, and here are three videos from the town of Carquet, New Brunswick, Canada.  They celebrate the day with a tintamarre, a noisy parade through the city.  The first video uses Zachary Richard’s song Reveille (Bayou des mysteres. Arzed Records. RZ-CD-1017. 1976. CD).  It opens with the Canadian Acadian flag, a French flag with a yellow star in the upper left.  There is also a Louisiana Acadian flag, which uses red, blue and white but has a very different design (top right here).
