Small Flags Decorating Tree

Small flags decorate a tree going over the mountain on Cecil Ashburn Drive in Huntsville, Alabama. Until the city stopped the practice, local citizens would decorate the trees and shrubs alongside the roadway. I always looked forward to seeing the decorations, but the city government declared the decorations to be litter and threatened to jail those decorating the trees.
