More thoughts on America - the Ubiquitous Flag

Everywhere I went in America's Mid-West, there were flags.. This bunch were some kind of memorial to fallen soldiers, on the road to Lake City

These lovely drapes appeared almost everywhere, inside and out

On the Wisconsin River ferry

And the border with Iowa

And on lamp-posts in Lake City..
Almost every house has one.. They are completely unselfconscious and express a sense of place that is most interesting to me - I find (particularly this year) that the sense of place here is both defensive and rather small-minded in so many ways..
