American Flag – Fourth of July and design

Nothing like the Fourth of July to cause one to think of patriotism and the influence of the American flag on design.  The flag has become a design classic in apparel, decor products, and design.  The flag continues to catch my eye on walks, magazines, stores, and design.  Here’s some favorites…

Of course we all think of Ralph Lauren when it comes to establishing the classic use of the flag in design. The Lauren’s home theater on the Colorado ranch…from Oprah.com (Having driven the road by the ranch, it is a pretty special spot.)

On a walk in Paso Robles, this flag beckoned to me through the trees…

 

Besides the best cupcakes ever, the flag caught my eye at Baked and Wired in Georgetown.

All these flags certainly caught my eye when I was at a parade…
