Laredo Monster Flag

Wednesday, 14th September 2005 by

Just beside the International bridge between Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico we find this gigantic Mexican flag, the way it sticks out the earth makes it look like something out of a cartoon.

This is one of a few flags which has been placed on the USA-Mexico border by the Mexican Army and is 28.6 x 50 m, weighing 350 kg, and hoisted on a flag pole 103m tall. Presumably in response to the Mexican flag there is a smaller USA flag sticking out of a building just to the north (more on the flags).
