Maine in Red, White and Blue
Posted on October 20, 2014
From the beginning of our travels through coastal Maine, I became aware of the numerous American flags flying in towns along public streets as well as on private houses. This seemed a bit curious as we rarely see this kind of thing in California. Perhaps the local folks are still trying to convince themselves that the British are really now somewhere else and that the locals are in full command. Or maybe there’s a bit of doubt still lurking around the fringes.
As we got ourselves to the very northern part of Maine, the flags increased in number, joined by the similarly colored French style flag with a star signifying an affinity with the Acadian tradition. We found the national colors displayed in a surprisingly large number of ways. Enjoy the following photos.
Au Revoir, Maine.
