National Geographic : 2015 Jul
In the Loupe With Bill Bonner, National Geographic Archivist PHOTO: BROWN BROTHERS, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CREATIVE A Banner Day Crowds gathered to gaze up at the “largest national flag” flying over New York City’s Times Square, prob- ably during the summer of 1913—though this photo- graph wasn’t acquired by the Geographic until June 1918. By that time the magazine had already devoted its entire October 1917 issue to the topic of flags in a patriotic tribute to America’s recent entry into World War I. “Never before in the history of this country has there been such a phenomenal demand for flags,” noted one photo cap- tion in that issue. “Not only Star Spangled Banners, but the flags of all the European nations with which the United States has joined forces in order to banish autocracy from the world.” —Margaret G.
