The people on the west side of the state probably won’t recognize this flag, but the people on the east side of the state that travel I75 will recognize this brick flag that stands along the highway near Bay City. It has the 50 state design on one side and the bicentennial design with the circle of stars on the other. For some, it marks the dividing line of ” Up North” on the way north, and for others, it means they are almost home when heading south. The flag was built in 1975 by local Bay City businessman Jim Graham as a way to promote an amusement park he wanted to build called ” Little Michigan. The park was supposed to be in the shape of Michigan with ponds in the shape of the 5 great lakes. The park never did get built, but the flag still stands waving at motorists as they drive by.
