Why they fly Old Glory

John and Debra Davis
The owners of Blue Star Industries fly the largest U.S. flag in the Grand Valley in front of their business. The flag measures 30 feet by 60 feet. John Davis said he spends thousands of dollars a year on new flags, repairs and nighttime lighting. But the response he has gotten from the public since hoisting it shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, has made it worth all the expense.
“We’re patriotic to the hilt, so why not get a big flag,” John said.
