Any guesses where I have been?

The first to guess where this (one of our spring break stops) wins 11.5 yards of luscious ribbon
sent to them first class in a food box!
hint: it is in the United States, part of a triangle and just celebrated it's 400th Birthday.

400 years hast to be Jamestown. At first I was thinking Yorktown, or some other battle ground.

Be careful in those mysterious triangles!

Kristi said...

I am thinking Bermuda- as in the bermuda triangle, but is that part of the united states? I would think no. but I really don't know!

Jinii said...

I would guess that is Plymouth Rock but that is a total guess.

Liz said...

The fort at Jamestown??? I love Williamsburg...will be so great with kids. Have a great time!

I have no idea, but what a good-looking flag!!!

Amanda :-) said...

Ooopsie! Why is there no red stripe on the diagonal white?? I must Wikipedia this...I feel some kind of story must be behind this 'version' of the Union Jack..?

Amanda :-) said...

Well, well, well...I just read this:

"The UK flag consists of three elements: the cross of St. George (red on white) for England, the cross of St. Andrew (white diagonal on blue) for Scotland, and the so-called cross of St. Patrick (red diagonal on white) for Ireland. The original Union Jack/Union Flag adopted in 1606 was symmetrical: the red cross of St. George outlined in white overlaid on top of a St. Andrew's flag, which was blue with a white X.

In 1801, an Act of Union which made Ireland a co-equal member of the United Kingdom made it necessary to add a symbol for Ireland to the flag, but without obliterating any of the existing symbols. If the St. Patrick's cross had been centered on the diagonal stripes, then St. Andrew's cross would have been relegated to an inferior position, basically serving only as a border for St. Patrick's. But Scotland was the senior of the two kingdoms, so this was unsatisfactory. The solution was to divide the diagonal stripes diagonally, so that the red St. Patrick's cross would take up only half of each stripe, and so that half devoted to St. Andrew would take the place of honor. Thus, in the two hoist quarters, the white St. Andrew's cross occupies the upper position, and in the two fly quarters, the red St. Patrick's cross occupies the upper position."

I knew that there's a right way and a wrong way to hang the flag, because the balance of the red diagonal is not equal - but I never questioned why.

So there you go, Kristi. You helped me educate myself tonight.

Oh, and is it JAMESTOWN by any chance? Hahaha.
