Flag Day Celebration

As some of you know July 14th is Flag Day in America. In honor of that it would be nice to see how you fly your flags....

Doc couldn't get his pictures to post from his phone so I'm posting them for him. His flag pole is 85' tall and lighted with 3,000 watts of light...
He didn't tell me how tall the Texas flag is.

85' flag pole! WOW! Mine is only 20'

Yes I'm suffering from flag pole envy right now.

THANKS Doug

I appreciate your help with the pictures and the posting write-up .
It's easy to see that I'm a 'flag nut' . Hope to see other fellow HTC members picture postings with the same affliction .
PS: Texas flag is at about 30 feet - homemade drill stem pole cantilevered and counter-balanced for access. I have to use a 90 foot crane truck to change the American flag .
Looking forward to seeing those folks that can make it to Nashville in just a few days .

Thanks again,

Anytime Doc! I can't find my pictures of the front yard flag. It isn't anything like yours though. I think it's a 22' telescoping.
I did find an old one of my son and I in front of it back in 2005.

Cool

I have my flag mounted to the house, as you can see behind my truck. I will have to take a better photo.

I know there are a lot more of you that fly flags. So take a picture and post them. Any picture is a good picture if "our" flag is in it.
