We like pictures with the flag and decided to look back in the archives for one to share here on Flag Day. The sun was just above the eastern horizon and starting to light up the neighborhood to our west when we snapped the photo below on June 9, 2016. We have seen this particular flag designated on nautical charts of Puget Sound to help establish locations.
