There is one symbol that all Americans take pride in – Old Glory herself. The Stars & Stripes always unite Americans upon common ground. Flag mountain will be at the head of Park of America. The American flag displayed on this mountain will be the largest flag in the world. Period! Its broad strips and bright stars will be permanent and enduring, like the proud people it represents. It is bigger than big and bold. It will capture the imagination of the American people and inspire awe around the world. This is a monumental task deserving of the citizens of this fine nation. It will be the greatest monument in America, for Americans, by Americans in recent history.
Some things are too big to comprehend! Being 1869.48 feet by 3552 feet, the largest flag in the world is hard to imagine. When trying to picture this U.S. flag, which will be constructed upon Flag Mountain, maybe these things will help you grasp its size: a Stars-and-Stripes banner that will be 6,640,393 square feet:
That’s enough room to park 77,000 cars.
It’s an area just over the size of 112 Jumbo 787 Dream liners.
In 2019, the tallest building in the world is due to be completed. At 3,280 feet tall, it could lay down within the flag, and miss meeting the end by 272 feet.
Each star will be taller than an 11-story building.
Each stripe will be 14 stories tall.
It will rest at an incline around 47 degrees, and the man-made mountain it is on will be over 77 stories high, and just over two thirds of a mile wide.
To say this is huge would be an understatement. There will not be another sight like it in the world. It will dwarf the current largest flags.
The top of the mountain will have eating venues, stores, rooms for special events, Founder’s rooms, observation seating, and solar panels to help power the park.
At the base of Flag Mountain will be a reservoir. Using one of the largest fountain systems in the world, it will display a fantastic, water-works show day and night the full length of the flag. Can you imagine the 4th of July here?
The plans for inside of the mountain are just as big. This area will be utilized over time to create income for sustaining Park Of America.
Picture this. It could contain several Mall of Americas. There are plans for theme park rides, indoor skiing and sledding (for southern children who never get to play in the snow), wave pools, hotels, and waterslides. Each of these sections will represent different regions of the United States, based on their climate. The Mountain will serve as a divider between this theme park and the rest of the Park of America. This way, the entertainment park will have its own atmosphere and not affect the ambiance of the serene outer park.
When purchasing tickets to experience the Park of America there will be two kinds of tickets. One ticket to enter the park to experience Americana, Soul Of America Monument, Park Of America Jr., White House, World Tour Lake and Concert area, and of course Flag Mountain. The other ticket would allow you in the theme park on the backside, inside, of Flag Mountain. We do this because some will just come for the main historical part of the park and it would not be fair to have people pay for something they have no intention of using.
