Flag Day in honor of red, white and blue in New Jersey

0

What does “red, white and blue” mean to you? For me, it’s America. This is freedom and our great nation. To me it is a symbol of the greatest nation in the world, if you have a better one to suggest then try it but I think I will refuse you.

Tuesday (June 14) is Flag Day and our time to honor the stars and stripes. I like to fly my flag at home every sunny day, it’s part of our house and I like to show the colors, like many in our neighborhood.

One of America’s largest flags is right here in New Jersey. According to a Bing research, one of the largest flags is located at Fort Lee on the George Washington Bridge. “Bridging the gap between New York and New Jersey, Fort Lee hosts the world’s largest flying American flag. The 450-pound nylon banner is over 60 feet long and 90 feet wide. Each stripe is about five feet wide and each star is about four feet in diameter.”

By the way, for the record, according to a Bing looking for the largest flag in America is right in Wisconsin. The “Superflag” is 505 feet wide and 225 feet high. It is recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the largest American flag in the world. It flies to Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

If Mother Nature behaves be sure to wear your colors on Tuesday as we celebrate Flag Day, below is our flag and I will fly ours with pride as we honor all that is part of the red , white and blue.
