Flags

In Cologne, where the largest Karneval celebrations in the country can be found, floats of Merkel and Trump - as well as British Prime Minister Theresa May - will be featured.

More than a million jesters are expected in the North Rhine-Westphalian city. Due to kick off in the morning, the colourful parade will contain around 10,000 participants. Lucky costumed visitors will be handed out 3,000 tonnes of sweets and 700,000 chocolate bars.
