500 Corporate America Flags Raise the Alarm on Independence Day

This July 4th, Independence Day, 500 Corporate America flags will be raised in over 200 cities across the US and around the world. The
"Brands and Bands" will replace the "Stars and Stripes" outside
Starbucks and Blockbuster, at the gates of US embassies in Canada and Sweden, and at the US-Mexico border. The flags will fly at a US Military Academy and at the G8 Summit in Geneva. One will burn in Kansas.

Making sure his whole neighborhood gets the message, a man in Arvada, Colorado will paint the Corporate flag on the side of his house.

And that’s not all…

In New York City, a 600 square foot flag will be displayed on a billboard just off Times Square.
