Benjamin Franklin Parkway

an original drawing by alleanna harris of the flags along Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia

Small fact today! There are 109 flags displayed along the Parkway. The tradition began in 1976 as a part of the bicentennial celebration. The flags represent countries with significant populations in Philly, and for the most part are hung alphabetically.

Original drawing available for purchase here.
