The Only Flag That Does Not Fly

Flag of flowers

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 2002 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. You can drive by this flag on V Street

south of Ocean Ave. in Lompoc, CA!
