Rex ~ King of Carnival
Rex Proclamations
  Since the founding of the Rex Organization in 1872 its traditions have helped define Mardi Gras. Rex's Proclamation invites his subjects to the grand celebration of Carnival.
  The 2014 Rex Proclamation, created by New Orleans artist Layla Messkoub, features the Rex crown surrounded by butterflies, lovely symbols of Carnival’s ephemeral beauty.  Layla works extensively in collage and has incorporated many layers and materials in the creation of this unique Rex Proclamation. 
  His royal colors of purple, green, and gold are to this day the colors of Mardi Gras, and the song played in the first Rex ;parade, "If Ever I Cease to Love," has become Carnival's anthem.

Rex Bulletins
   Since the founding of the Rex Organization in 1872 its traditions have helped define Mardi Gras. During the "Golden Age" of Carnival, Parade Bulletins were published to give the public a glimpse of parade themes and float designs. This tradition was renewed in 2002. 
   The 2014 bulletin beautifully depicts the theme "Gods of All Ages" with original art and elegant designs for each float in the 2014 Rex Procession.
