This Flag Doesn’t Fly
I got these photos in an email from my mother-in-law. I believe they have been ‘making the rounds’ as it were. The pictures literally made me cry. So beautiful I had to share…again.
Between the fields where the flag is planted, there are 9+ miles of flower fields
that go all the way to the ocean. The flowers are grown by seed companies.
It’s a beautiful place, close to Vandenberg AFB .
Check out the dimensions of the flag. The Floral Flag is 740 feet long
and 390 feet wide and maintains the proper Flag dimensions, as
described in Executive Order #10834. This Flag is 6.65 acres and is
the first Floral Flag to be planted with 5 pointed Stars, comprised of White
Larkspur. Each Star is 24 feet in diameter, each Stripe is 30 feet wide.
This Flag is estimated to contain more than 400,000 Larkspur plants
with 4-5 flower stems each, for a total of more than 2 million flowers.
For our soldiers….
