The Many Flags of Florida

Florida Flags

 

Florida’s a very diverse place. You could be driving past a Vietnamese Buddhist temple, admiring it’s architecture and beauty, while a shaved head local passes you in in his Confederate Battle Flag littered pickup truck blasting Lil Wayne. The middle of Florida is full of old people. On your way through Gainesville, the hippies almost outnumber the rednecks. Down in the Keys, fishermen and “men who fish for men” all get along. North Florida is mostly rebel flags. Miami is an oasis of international variety: from Cuban coffee to Haitian griot, you can pretty much find any type of food here. Tampa Bay’s just a fucking mess, hence the pirate flag…

Rep your flag by posting in the comments below. Don’t see your flag? Add it to the comments and tell us your county, and we might add it on the next version. Celebrate Diversity! Rep Your Flag!

Gator of Peace

Meditating Gator

Remember to always be peaceful and kind, especially in the face of hatred and anger. Shit’s getting pretty wild all over the place, but us Florida folk are used to it. Love thy neighbor. Chill out. Don’t be a dick. It’s very possible to keep Florida weird, while also being decent to each other.
