Largest Display Of Old Glory
June 14, 2021
The largest display of the American Flag "Old Glory" was flown from the downstream face of the Hoover Dam (Nevada) on May 1, 1996. The 505 foot by 255 foot flag with each star over 17 feet high weighed 3,000 pounds and was hoisted by three separate cables located at the top of the dam.
The flying of the flag was part of a ceremony in which the 1996 Summer Olympic torch, on its way to Atlanta, Georgia, was carried across Hoover Dam.
