As I was reading a couple of the comments on the Leo Cottage post last Sunday, I was inspired to write a post showing examples of a front porch flag. Some of you mentioned you enjoyed seeing the U.S. flag flying from the cottage’s porch. So here’s a few more that I think you’ll enjoy!
Is there anything more “Americana” than the iconic white porch above with its swing and flat with amber waves of grain in the background? Maybe apple pie and baseball. 🙂
While I like the look of a flag flying in front of a pretty home, the truth is, I don’t think you need to fly a flag to show your patriotism. In my humble opinion, true patriotism begins within our hearts and displaying the golden rule through our actions.
A two-story porch features two flags – one on either side of the entrance to the lower porch. Such a fine example of a southern style home!
Here’s a closer view of the porch with the stars and stripes on display.
Normally this image would make me think it’s Independence Day or Flag Day, but it looks like fall so I’m guessing it’s a patriotic neighborhood or some other type of celebration.
A wrap-around porch lets Old Glory hang straight down – one flag between each sets of columns all the way around the house.
A front porch flag doesn’t need to be relegated to a patriotic holiday, but one should make sure the flag isn’t frayed if displaying it year-round.
A variation on this theme shows a bit of red, white, and blue bunting on the front porch.
I’ll give a shout out to my Canadian friends with their country’s flag proudly displayed in the winter time.
Thanks to those of you who commented about the flag flying outside the porch of last Sunday’s home tour. You gave me the inspiration to feature more front porch flags!
