Flag Day can make you rich!

Monday is Flag Day - a holiday that originated just a few miles from my home here in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin. How can Flag Day make you rich? When America adds a 51st (and 52nd state) everyone is going to need new flags to display on Flag Day (...and Memorial Day, and the 4th of July....) So my best get-rich tip is to buy stock in a flag-making company. Because if you've read Lost States, you've learned that adding more states is inevitable. It's what we do as Americans. So get your shares of Anin and Company, the oldest and largest manufacturer of flags in the U.S. (And no, they didn't pay me anything to make this suggestion.)  Above is the design I like for a 51 star flag.


  1. The one thing I dislike about that flag design, is that I can't help seeing an asterisk in the star pattern.

  2. I don't know, seems like the world is hung up on territorial integrity these days. NYC needs to be a state, and California needs splitting. But it will never happen.

    By the way when I'm looking at Facebook on my iPhone, all your posts are broken. They just take me to a Google map somewhere. This post took me to Jacksonville FL.
