I was wondering how everyone does they're American flag with lights. I was thinking red white and blue rope lights but would like to see some different ideas. Thanks

We have a flag made from standard LED lights. Used pvc-conduit to mount the lights.

Went to take one for you, but I got there too late. The display crew is in the park today and had it down on the ground. Sorry.

Iíve put the flag on my mega trees. If they arenít up Iíll just run red white and blue on my soffits. Not quite a flag, but another idea.

If you can find it, Matt Johnson had a video up that showed how he did his window matrices. I plan on using that idea, using standard AC LEDs poked through the EMT where he did 12mm pixels. This will create an easily rolled up flag that can be put out year after year.

I found the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cL9Dy0RlEEw
(Please forgive the dubstep. It is just his thing.) :)

I have been thinking about building a flag too. Then I was thinking if I built a matix it would have more uses than just a flag.
I saw this companies youtube last year. On building one.

Although they also sell them built you just add a ESPpixelstick and a power supply and there you go.

for $269 might be worth it. After connectors wire ect.. and it is flexible.
They also have a non-waterproof roll-able one.
