House Displays Flag and a Note at the Door

The Great Star Flag was on display Monday at a home in the 1400 block of N. Lincoln Street, in the Virginia Square neighborhood.

As the older version of today’s American Flag waived proudly in the winter air, a small white board set inside a front window of the house it hangs on.

On the board in green marker was written “Today’s Flag: Great Star Flag 1836,” as if to give a brief history lesson on what flag is on display next to the door. No one was home early Monday afternoon to answer questions about the flag, or why it hangs there with its brief description.

Other flags have been known to hang in the same spot, all with their descriptions spelled out on the white board.

The outside walls of the house are pained a mixture of blue and white, and the door a fiery red, clearly matching the flag that adorns the façade. While the flag had the same red and white stripes we’re used to seeing on the flag today, the stars in the field of blue were all arranged into a larger star pattern.
