This is a 30 foot by 20 foot nylon United States Flag. The use of large US flags is gaining popularity with sports teams and event planners. Typically carried by many people on to the playing area for the national anthem, the flags are then unfurled and often slowly waved. Many teams utilize service members to carry the flag.

Some teams have expressed concerns about displaying the flag in this manner, since it is not explicitly noted in the US Flag code We encourage teams to work with local military offices for more details, however it should be noted these large field flag displays are widely accepted. As noted in the US Flag Code, the key is that the flag is shown proper respect; Not letting it touch the ground and treating it with reverence.

The Flag Code may be fairly tested: 'No disrespect should be shown to the Flag of the United States of America.' Therefore, actions not specifically included in the Code may be deemed acceptable as long as proper respect is shown.

We recommend using one person every 5-6 feet and at each corner. For a 30 by 20 foot flag using 18 to 24 people is ideal. Proper practice and run-thrus are essential for an effective and respectful display.

The NHL used such a presentation at their Winter Classic game in Buffalo NY. Here is a story from the NY Division of Military and Naval Affairs.

New York Army National Guardsman Sgt. Kevin Krantz, a member of A Company of the 27th Brigade Special Troops Battalion, joined 60 Soldiers, Airmen and Marines in unfurling a 60 foot by 30 foot American flag prior to the New Yearís Day National Hockey League game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Here is another recommended story on field flag displays:

...The latest canít-miss blend of sports and patriotism, a combination increasingly presenting itself through gigantic American flags, unfurled by dozens or hundreds of people in an attempt to elicit a sense of awe and nationalism in the surrounding crowd.

Once the gaudy lure of attention-seeking car dealerships or other roadside attractions, big flags have found a comfortable home inside the ballparks, arenas and raceways of American sporting events. (NYTimes.com)
