Here are some more flag photos from last week. Now, this is not the handmade flag we made last summer, not the exact same flag that was used on Opening Day, but it is a replica of the Star-Spangled Banner used at Ft. McHenry.
It traveled last week with the Ft. McHenry guard and was used at the opening ceremonies of the NCAA men’s basketball Final Four in Dallas! This photo was taken by my son Jon who was there with my husband. I went last year….what a fun event!
Then the Star-Spangled Banner showed up again at the women’s Final Four! This photo was taken from my television! I would have loved to have been there…..our Maryland Lady Terps were one of the Final Four teams this year!
This was not “our” flag with “our” stitches, but it was great to see the flag with fifteen stars at these national events. This year is the 200th anniversary of the Star a Spangled Banner…..big celebrations coming all over Maryland this year!
