Jumping the Gun, But, Its Not a Flag anyway

Went out for a look around for Scooter’s latest vexing challenge into Vexillology, and I did find several examples that would quality.

This is not one of them — most Vexillologists  would agree, a wind sock in not a flag, but, its sorta like a flag.  An air filled flag (with appropriate wind conditions as it was today) — this one is not at Vermilion International, its at the hospital heliport.

Not a single Wind Sock among them  🙁

Hmmmm  Home Depot seems to think its a flag

Real Deal flags starting tomorrow!

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    So what do the flags of Australia, Brazil and Papua-New Guinea have in common Rich?

    In your neck of the woods, Rich, windsocks probably need to be replaced regularly because they are constantly being torn loose and blown all the way to Indiana along with tons of topsoil, stray ears of corn, and a few unlucky cows. 😉

    That is a fact!
    We aren’t in Indiana, but you can see it from here — just 7 miles — Benton County (IN) wind farm shows up nicely, especially at night with all the red lights.
    A ride to Boswell, IN, would be a good tour — Boswell is after all, “The Hub of the Universe” says so on their water tower. 😉

    Vexillology – thanks for the new word! I never heard that one before.
    I have been seeing more wind socks around here than flags. I guess you in the USA will always be ahead in the number of flags you can see.

      As with Suzanne, that is a new word for me as well. My ‘windsock’ post is not a real windsock but i do not know what else to call it. It is kinda in the shape of a windsock ;’-).
