Photo Hunt--theme: flags

Visit TnChick for other PhotoHunters' collection of flag photos.
I was reminded by the theme of flags at various war memorials--this one the World War II memorial in our state capitol of Olympia (which I missed featuring in my ABC Wednesday tour of the state). The flags are obvious; the stakes, in the form of a stalk of wheat (I think) count the number of state citizens who perished in that war.

I've not seen the Olympia memorial (yet). The stalks of wheat are really unique. I'll have to add it to our "field trip" list!

Oh! Now that is one I would like to see in person -- just beautiful and an honor to those who served.
