raise the flags

The Krewe

Our symbol is our flag.

It's the thing that we rally around.

And when we raise that flag, we know it's game time.

It's time to leave all the problems of the real world behind, and escape together.

Together we can weather every storm.

Together we are a krewe.

Together we are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
