About the Krewe
The Knights of Sparta originated as a bal masque organization in 1951. Today, it is one of the premier first weekend Mardi Gras parades in New Orleans.
Our Spartan motto is “Palmam Qui Meruit Ferat”, which translates to “Let He Who Merits The Palm Possess It”…… In other words, “If You Wish To Gain Recognition, Work Hard For It”.
Our krewe colors are Harvard Red, Old Gold, and Forest Green. Harvard Red stands for the deep red of a Spartan Soldier’s cloak and uniform. Old Gold stands for the golden color of a Spartan’s sword. The Forest Green stands for the green of the palm branch that was presented to Spartans who distinguished themselves in battle or other pursuits.
