The 2002 Bodger Floral Flag
As a patriotic gesture after the tragedy of September 11, 2001,
Bodger Seeds has again planted a Floral Flag in Lompoc, California.
It has been 50 years since we have planted such a flag.
There have been four Floral Flags planted by Bodger Seeds in Lompoc
during the last century:1942, 1943, 1945, 1952. All of the flags were
comprised of Red, White and Blue Larkspur flowers.
Some of the flags were planted in a background of White Larkspur.
Either the 1943 or the 1945 flag was a 'wavy' flag that was a failure.
This is a MURAL of the 1942 flag....which Lompoc, CA is famous for, and can be found along with many others on their website (above)
