Fire Hydrant Flag Marker

A new trend with fire hydrants is to add a flag.  Not a normal flag, it is a hard plastic trapezoid on a red and white metal pole.  It is supposed to help visually ID more quickly where the hydrant is located.

You can see "HYDRANT" upon the hard plastic vexilloid.

Wisconsin Flag in that 70s Show

 That 70s Show was a classic home town show about life in the midwest.  More or less focused on the latter half of the 1970s.  It effectively captures teenage basement culture.

Here our heroes sit in a classroom on photo, day.  In the corner is the Wisconsin State Flag. 

Here is another angle of the Wisconsin, State Flag.  Wisconsin really is in the middle of the world since a 45th Parallel North crosses its state lines.
