The Only Flag That Doesn't Fly
May 19, 2008
Between the fields where the flag is planted, there are nine-plus 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 Air Force Base. 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....Please don't break it!
