Volunteers Place ‘Big Betsy’ in Cold Water Canyon
WEBER COUNTY, Utah – About 100 volunteers with the group Follow the Flag hiked up Cold Water Canyon early Sunday morning to fly a flag they call Big Betsy.
At 150 feet by 78 feet, it’s the largest American flag to fly in history.
Today, it’s flying in honor of all veterans, but especially Major Brent Taylor who was killed on November 3rd while serving for the Utah National Guard in Afghanistan.
Weber County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue posted about the process to get the giant flag in place.
