Musicians play the accordion during the Kraainem carnival parade on the edge of Brussels, Belgium on Feb. 16, 2013. Kraainem sits on the border between Dutch-speaking Flanders and Brussels, which has  a bilingual French-speaking majority. One of the curiosities along the language border is how the color of paint on traffic lights changes depending on the region. In Flanders, the lights are painted with black and yellow stripes to match the Flemish flag. In Brussels and Wallonia, the lights are painted red and white as seen in the background of this picture.
