The Flag That Doesn’t Fly

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.

Please stop for a moment and say a prayer for our soldiers…..

    It’s beautiful, just like are troops are!

    Our little community had a yard sale Saturday with a dozen small hand-waving size flags inserted in the chain link fence to attract attention from passers by. When we all got tired of it towards the end of the afternoon, we decide to just put a FREE-HELP YOURSELF sign on a sandwich board on the sidewalk and leave stuff there near the fence; dishes, books, nordic track, lots of items! A woman came walking by and asked it it was really free. We said, sure, take whatever you want. The only thing she wanted was one of the flags. Pray for our troops!

    Never knew this even existed! Totally awesome and so moving a memorial to all who have served to keep the United States of America Free!

  6. I remember taking a group of riders on goldwings to see this flag in 2002. From ground level it wasn’t really visible but from a plane, wow! I was glad we made the effort because it is something that probably won’t ever be seen again (except for the pictures).
