Between the  fields where the flag is planted, there are 9+ miles of flower fields that  go all the way to the ocean. The flowers are grown by seed companies. It's  a beautiful place, close to Vandenberg AFB.

Check out the dimensions of  the flag. The Floral Flag is 740 feet long and 390 feet wide and maintains  the proper Flag dimensions, as described in Executive Order #10834. This  Flag is 6.65 acres and is the first Floral Flag to be planted with 5  pointed Stars, comprised of White  Larkspur.  

Each Star is 24 feet in diameter; each Stripe is 30 feet  wide. This Flag is estimated to contain more than 400,000 Larkspur plants,  with 4-5 flower stems each, for a total of more than 2 million  flowers.
