Friday Flags A View from the Highway in Connecticut

While making a drive down a state highway, Route 8, I had an opportunity to take a photo of a flag that I don't normally see in full glory. The spot is close to the Waterbury/Naugatuck town line.

Friday Flags A View from the Highway in ConnecticutThis is a very large flag, sitting well above grade and it stands at the rear of a contractor's lot. Not for the people from the front roadway to see, but for all that pass that highway spot daily. 

He's letting his potential clients know that he is a proud American and just maybe it gets him a reward of business.

Hi Ed,
I love your Friday Flags. We have a fruit stand in the area that flies one of the biggest flags I've ever seen. I always love driving by there.

Good morning, Ed... you captured a beautiful photo of Old Glory... but I do hope you weren't driving on the highway when you snapped the picture.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400   That owner has a prime location to capture his audience and it is a very tall pole and large flag.

Will Hamm   Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Carol Williams   I normally see flags that size in front of auto dealerships.

Roy Kelley, Thaks for taking the time to stop and comment.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!   I have a thought working for my next week's post on that subject.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE®   It is large and the difference between the American flag and the state's flag is noticeable.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho   That flag will always be waving even when the wind is almost nothing as the cars on the highway bereeze by.

George Souto   The lower flag is a state flag which is possibly 5' x 3' so yes, it is a rather large flag.

Steffy Hristova   Yes, I have been doing the Friday flags for about a year and so far, have been consistent. I got started on this because of a post I saw by Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho

Kathy Streib   I do as well and when I see a flag in front of a business make a note to try and catch it on a breezy day.

Brian England   I would like to think that people recognize a proud citizen and keep that in mind when they need a service that they might provide.

Nina Hollander, Broker   Yes and I tried on a few occasions to get a shot but the wind didn't cooperate. Yes, I did stop and not long after I did a state trooper stopped to see if I needed help.  He smiled when I told him why I had stopped.
