Enlivening Boston's Flag; Building Green Homes in the City

New, 1 comment

BOSTON—Boston's flag is unimaginative. (Related: Boston has a flag.) "Boston's city flag, approved by Mayor James Michael Curley in 1917, consists of the city seal centered on a pale blue field. It's a basic template that vexillologists — people who study flags — refer to as an 'SOB' or seal on a bedsheet." [Globe]
