LOL! Have you ever been to Fort Wayne? We have the same thing. Biggest flag in town flies over a car dealership. The thing is ginormous and can be seen from a mile away. The newspaper did a story on it when it first went up, right after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. If I remember right, it is over 50 feet long! The pole its on is something like 250 feet tall.
I don't know why car dealers do this. This is the only one in town (and we're a big city with about 20 new car dealerships and countless used car lots) with an outsized flag (many others fly normal size flags), and its got a reputation as the crookedest car dealer in town!
