THE FLAG THAT DOES NOT FLY
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.
