Amazing Flag Ceremony

Chief Seattle Council

In a darkened room have a spotlight shining up on the flag from a very low position. The flag needs to be as large a flag as possible, and made of 100% nylon to create the right effect. It must be rolled onto the poll as tight as it can be done and then secured there by a ribbon tied around it or an unseen line of some kind like heavy fishing line. On a cue, the line/ribbon is cut/released and the flag will begin to "twirl" as it uncoils. A large flag will do this for an amazingly long time and the effect is quite striking.

This can be done in conjunction with music or narration of any kind.
