Have you ever read Franz Kafka’s AMERICA? or was it AMERIKA? don’t remember c or k , but it is as strange as those flags.
Yes and Yes! This flag really strikes me – but it may not seem interesting to other people – everything, except the stripes is wrong – yet it reads U.S. flag. It would be hard to wave this flag it is so longggggg!
Thanks for looking around,
We have a few more states and stars these days! 🙂
We never had stars like these! Organized this way?
Or did we?
Well the uniform looks vaguely civil war era (northern bluecoat), but the flag has 13 stripes and 14 stars — that’s wrong, there’s one star too many for revolutionary days and the civil war union flag would have had 33 stars. I’m not exactly a US flag historian, though.
Neither am I, but there are a couple of good sites about the flag and its different styles – in my little look around I didn’t find this combo. “His” words say America, but his looks say something else.
