Living Flags

"In preparation for Naval Station Great Lakes' 2011 centennial, sailors re-created a piece of naval history on Flag Day June 14," the Sun-Times Media Network reports.

"The original Living Flag was photographed by Arthur Mole and featured 10,000 sailors who created a 48-star flag in celebration of the armistice on the parade field in November 1917.

"The June 14 flag - this time a 50-star version - included 7,500 sailors from Training Support Center, Recruit Training Command, Naval Hospital Corps School and other tenant commands at Great Lakes. "

Here is that Living Flag as well as a few others.

1. It is alive!

*

2. DIY.

*

3. Witmen, Wisconsin's seven-person living flag!

*

4. They do it over there too.

*

5. You can wear one too, with a "unique, 3D rippling effect."
