In Response to Re: HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!:
GRANA here; In this, " the lnd of the free" we (condo dwellers are not free to fly any flags [ condo by-laws]( meaning,I think those hose silk holiday banners. We kept our U.S.flag up anyway (while son was out at sea) till he retired from the navy...It took a long, hard fight til I convinced the beaurocratic fool, threatening us w/ fines that he'd lose if he fined us,as thtreatened & we took him to court.While the flag was up[( while son was out at sea/activeduty); it began to rot.It was removed & properly disposed of through the VFW & not replaced We're just too old to battle over so many things , these days

I would buy 1 or more of the smaller ones on a wooden stick & put it on a windowsill, or if you have an end table in front of a window, you could get a larger one & place on the table so it could be seen from outside.
I have a few of the small flags & put them in vases throughout the house, I bought fake roses (2 blue, 2 red & 2 white) & put 1 of each color in white vases ( I have 2 the same) on the mantel & have a flag in each. Another vase in the kitchen with carnations has a flag (I put the flags in for Flag Day & leave them in till Aug. 1. The foyer vase gets changed for each of the 4 seasons, but that one always has a flag in it. I have real big red, white & blue bows on the front door (1 outside & 1 inside) that will stay up all of July.
