I took this picture of the flags out in front of City Hall a couple of weeks ago. I hope you are able to scan this onto your web site. Don't worry about sending the picture back to me, since I ordered double prints.
I am surprised and shocked that the Alameda flag is actually at the bottom of the flagpole. Doesn't this seem the reverse of what it should be? The Alameda flag should be at the top, and the biggest; the American flag, being the furthest away from Alameda, should be at the bottom.
Everybody, please call your city council members (and replacement candidates, since the ones in office now won't listen to us) and ask them to fix this embarassing problem. Alameda should come first!
