Today's flag, or set of flags, hang on Outrigger Style Flagpoles above the entrance to the InterContinental Hotel in downtown Chicago on Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile. There are so many great Chicago flags, in the Windy City. If we made Flag of the Day restricted to only flags in Chicago, we would have enough material for over 3 years. There are just so many flags in the windy city. But that is just it. How do you keep flags looking nice in the "Windy City"? What type of flags do you need?
Some people know that Chicago is not called the Windy City because it is always windy, but because the nick name of the old town mayor was "Wind Bags." Old Wind Bags would probably be an asset in today's blogging world. But Wind Bags was right. This city is windy. So windy, we've seen flag rip in half down the center. The city is congested and flags get caught on signs, old parts, and fade in the smog. This makes today's Flag of the Day extra special. Well... it is Friday.
These flags at the InterContinental Hotel are special. Made of a lock-stitched, 200-denier nylon sun resistant fabric. Printed single/reverse style for breathe-ability. But that is not the most import part. They have reinforcing patches for a Non Tangle Rod to attach stainless steel clamps to the flag to help it from wrapping around the pole. In Chicago, the longest lasting flag IS the best value.
