FEATURES

Flags representing the American States, foreign nations and other governmental organizations are brilliantly illuminated at night.

The flags are individually lighted by specially designed twin-light fixtures, mounted on each flagpole.

The flags are of uniform size, 10 by 15 feet, raised on flagpoles 30 feet high, with the light fixture mounted 9 feet 7 inches above ground level. A total of 504 flags are displayed in the several areas mentioned above.

The twin-light fixture has a 150-watt reflector lamp in each of two aluminum cylinders, one on each side of the pole. The total lighting load is about 150 kilowatts.
