    The answer is "NO."

    Modern fireworks are made with much more sophisticated compositions than just blackpowder. There is *some* blackpowder in modern fireworks, but usually we're talking more energetic compounds for most items. Also, there's much to be said for using oxidizers that make pretty colors.
