It’s all in the perspective

It seems it’s all a matter of perspective – the huge American flag hanging in the state Capitol these days isn’t really bigger than the flag that flies atop the former Simplot house – it’s actually smaller. Ric Johnston, facilities manager for the state, said the capitol flag is 20 by 30 feet, and the Simplot house flag is 30 by 50 feet. “The Simplot flag is absolutely huge,” he said. “Thirty by 50, that’s 1,500 square feet – that’d cover most homes.”
