A major political event for about 50 years now is the Politische Aschermittwoch or Political Ash Wednesday, in Bavaria, which this year took place on 13 February 2002. (...) The FDP did not use many flags, as usually. (...) Tables were decorated with small paper flags, yellow with a blue inscription '18'. This recalls the claim to get 18% of the votes at the next elections.
