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 in the city of Lompoc, California.

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…..

A woman came walking by and asked it it was really free. We said, sure, take whatever you want. The only thing she… Read more »

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).
