Although we Canadians are proud of our flag I certainly noticed during my time in New York City that Americans are more passionate about their stars and stripes than we are about our maple leaf. They display their flag literally everywhere! Here are some places I found the flag during my visit to the city.
In the Great Hall on Ellis Island. Over twelve million immigrants entered the United States through this hall between 1892 and 1954.
