I took these photos of the flags on the USS North Carolina when I made a solo pilgrimage to this paragon on wartime ingenuity on July 27.

Please check out the other head bangers who participate in this little weekly challenge. Their links are below the banner.

  1. Pearl Harbor & the Missouri salute the North Carolina!

    With maritime flags, of course.

    Trivia fact: The universally known "Peace Symbol" (you're already picturing the circle and lines inside, right?)
    Well that symbol is based on the flag signal "N" & "D"
    for Nuclear Disarmament.


    Lovely, Sandy

  2. Great shot of your flag streaming in the breeze. As for standing on the deck in front of those guns I'm glad they were not in use.

  12. Great furling flag header. I love touring navy warships. I have to do it myself though, I love the engine rooms best and my wife can't stand the faint oil smell in closed quarters.
