I almost used this last week for the letter E Eagle!!! So I was thrilled when I saw Tom's choice of FLAG.


The road to Findlay becoming designated Flag City, USA began in 1968 when John B. Cooke moved to Findlay. As a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, Cooke believed in the value of flying the American flag and went door-to-door in town asking residents and businesses alike to fly a flag on Flag Day, June 14, 1968. Cooke created a fund and purchased 14,000 small flags for the community. This project continued until 1974, when the Women’s Division of the Chamber of Commerce started a campaign to, once again, have flags fly and to have the city of Findlay become officially known as Flag City USA. On May 7, the House of Representatives passed a resolution officially declaring Findlay Flag City, USA.

Déjà Brew
A catchall for leftover beer, coffee, food, motels and whatever catches my fancy!



  1. Beautiful mural.
    Great story about Flag City and great "banner", too. And now I want a burger!

  2. I like your Fuddrucker sign. Ours has closed but we have another still open four and a half miles away. No Fatburger places here, but we had Burger King hamburgers this afternoon, taken home to eat. I like the Fisherman's Warf, we couldn't find our new Fish and Chip place, Chippers, so we drove through Burgerking instead for the burgers.

  3. That mural is eye-catching! Oh how I miss Fuddruckers. We had one down the street when we lived in Dallas.

  4. Interesting about Flag City and love the flag Jackie. Great selection of "F's" today. I hope you have a a wonderful weekend and week aheead
