American Flags as Big as Fields
Once the gaudy lure of attention-seeking car dealerships or other roadside attractions, big flags have found a comfortable home inside the ballparks, arenas and raceways of American sporting events. A small industry has formed to supply the flags, usually at a cost of a few thousand dollars an appearance.
