Flag Of Flowers

Recommended Posts

This is just amazing to me, not only is it huge, the proportions are correct.
It took someone a lot of time to map it out and even more to plant it.
I don't know who they are, but thank-you for what you have done.
With things which are currently going on in our country, it is great to see the American Spirit is still alive.

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.
