Bagad Karukéra is a Breton bagpipe players' association in Guadeloupe. Karukéra is claimed to be Guadeloupe's "real" name, meaning "the beautiful watered island".

The flag of the bagad is the Breton Gwenn-ha-Du, with an outlined map of Guadeloupe in the fly and a red triskelion on the map, placed over the location of the capital city Basse-Terre. The map recalls the shape of Breton bagpipes.
