Vandenberg AFB, located in Lompac, California.  Between the fields where the flag is planted, there are 9+ miles of flower fields that go all the way to the ocean. 

It is 740 feet long and 390 feet wide and actually maintains the proper flag dimensions as stated in

Executive Order #10834This gorgeous flag is 6.5 acres  with each stripe being 30 feet wide and each pointy star 24 feet in diameter!  Containing over 400,000 larkspur plants, with 4-5 stems each, for a total of more than 2 million flowers.

A beautiful tribute to our nation and to our soldiers everywhere.

  1. Really? How amazing. I’ve been to Lompoc I couldn’t tell you how many times and I’ve never heard of this. Of course I haven’t actually been on the AFB. Very cool!

  2. That’s awesome, Sandi! I’ve never heard of that, but think it’d be great if every state had something similar.
