••Half Staff for RBG•• Billed as the world’s largest free-flying American flag, The Acuity record setting flag and flag pole is always a sight to behold on our drives around Sheboygan. It is even more breathtaking when it’s flying at half staff. It is in this position currently to honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg until her interment is complete. * The flagpole is nearly 100 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty. * At 70 by 140 feet, the flag is the world's largest free-flying American flag. * Each stripe is over 5 feet high and each star is just over 3 feet wide * Flags are taken down at the first sign of wear, such as tearing along the seams. A professional seamstress uses an industrial-grade sewing machine kept at Acuity to make repairs. * The 9,800-square-foot flag weighs 250 pounds. * The flagpole is designed to withstand a low temperature of -42 degrees and wind speeds up to 120 miles per hour. * Three pendulum-style tuned mass dampers reduce movement and vibration. * Over 500 gallons of paint cover the pole, and the foundation needed 680 cubic yards of concrete. * The flagpole weighs approximately 420,000 pounds. #acuityflag #sheboyganwisconsin #ruthbaderginsburg #notoriousrbg #flaghalfmast #halfstafforhalfmast #supremecourt #womensrights #rbg #rbglegacy #firstwoman #uscapitol #ussupremecourt #ussupremecourtjustice #equalrightsforall #womensrightsproject #payequality #righttochoose #rbgcollar #honorablerbg #largestflag #largestflagpole
