This is the video of the flag at the Frying Pan Tower during Hurricane Florence:
The Frying Pan Tower is a Coast Guard Light Station located 34 miles off the coast of North Carolina that has been turned into a unique adventure bed and breakfast like no other.
The Daily Caller posted an article today about the flag in the video above.
The article reports:
An American flag that flew off the coast of North Carolina survived winds of over 100 mph from Hurricane Florence and was sold for over $10,000.
Richard Neal, owner of the Frying Pan Tower where the flag once flew, said it was meant to be a symbol of the pride and resilience of America.
“What we wanted to do when we put it up there was nothing more than saying this is America,” Neal told “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. “We are proud of it and we go through storms together and we survive. We hang on and we rebuild.”
The flag was auctioned off for $10,900 Sunday and all the proceeds are going to help victims of Hurricane Florence through the Red Cross, ABC11 WTVD reported.
