Default Red, White & Blue -- Grand Floral Parade 2006

Most people are familiar with the famous Tournament of Roses parade held on New Year's Day in Pasadena, California. However, I would guess that most people are not familiar with a very similar parade held in Portland, Oregon in June of every year. It is part of the annual Portland Rose Festival. The festival is comprised of many different events during the month of June including three different parades. The Grand Floral Parade highlights entries from all over the world. The floats are decorated entirely with flowers, greenery, and other plant related materials.

Here is a flag from the 2006 Grand Floral Parade. I don't know who the gentlemen are but they are members of the Portland Rosarians, Portland's official greeters group.

That's got to be a fairly creative application to making three blue portion of the flag.
Those fellows look like they are enjoying themselves.
