Upload the flag.gif you want to a photobucket account. Right click on the flag, click properties, highlight and copy the URL address, then go to your user cp, edit signature and paste it into the appropriate box. Dont bother trying to copy from those photobucket links.....they all dont work.
Of get a hold of Mr. Jimi....he's good with this stuff.

from WilliG's visit to the VAB, you can park a bus on each stripe that's how wide they are...the flag is 209ft X 110ft, it took 6,000 gallons of paint to paint the flag and the NASA meatball on the side of the VAB

I certainly did not take this but it's got to be one of the best pics of the American Flag of all time! On par with Iwo Jima!

All these pics are pretty cool. I for one think that the Flag is more than a symbol, it is a way of life. For people who burn their own country's flag, remember from out of the ashes we will rise.

I tell you what, fellow American...
there is nothing more beautiful in my eyes than an American flag flying free, and nothing that can bring tears to my eyes faster!!

GOD BLESS AMERICA, AMERICANS, AND ALL WHO HAVE DIED FOR HER!

Here is a picture I took myself a few years back. It was obviously early in the morning, just before work. I walked out on the side deck looked up and went right back in for my camera.
http://xlforum.net/photopost/data/500/medium/FLAG_AT_SUNRISE_021.jpg
The pole is a cedar log that I trimmed up and planted 3 feet in the ground. Went and bought all the hardware at a flag shop and it's been there for about 5-6 years now. Just last week the rope snapped in a wind storm and when the weather breaks its going back up . This has also been viewed in my gallery 131 times in a year.
