    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.


    I was able to find this on another website.

    I even enjoy seeing the red, white and blue flying from car dealerships. I know on their part it is just commercialism, but that flag is sure grand wherever it is flown. However it is irritating to see the flags flying which are ripped. As far as this picture, it probably did take a rocket scientist to figure out how to plant those seeds for that flag...darn good job.
