My Sunday Picture....


In the United States, June 14th is Flag Day. It celebrates the adoption of the United States flag by the Second Continental Congress in 1777.
It wasn't until 1916 that President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed June 14 to be Flag Day.
The American flag has inspired many folks to use its image in multiple ways. Some are awe-inspiring and some are, well, stupid. 
But to each his own....
Here is a picture of the world's largest American flag. It is 505' x 255' in dimension. It takes 500 people to unfurl it.

Here is a picture of the world's smallest American flag. All 50 stars and all 13 stripes are there, and it is smaller than a human hair. The Guinness Book of World Records won't accept it because they don't have a method of actually seeing the flag, as you can clearly see.

We have the unbelievable image of our flag on the moon, or in the desert in Arizona as some skeptics choose to believe. 

Some die hards have displayed the flag on the top of Mt. Everest.

Artist Jasper Johns used the flag in his art work.

Some patriotic dog owners deck out their pooches in the red, white and blue.

Others pronounce their patriotism in more personal ways.

Here multiple countries embellish young faces.

And the red, white and blue colors embellish young boobs.

And finally, I don't even know what to say about this one.
God Bless America.
