The Motif Of The US Flag In France

I find it interesting how often I see French people wearing clothing and or using advertising and decorating items based on the US flag’s iconic “stars and stripes.”

I’ve often wanted to take photos of French locals wearing interestingly designed US flag themed clothing.  Out of respect for their privacy (and not wanting to look like some kind of deranged stalker) I haven’t been photographing actual people. But with US Independence Day approaching, I thought I’d share a sampling of “stars and stripes” items I’ve seen in local stores.  Great Britain’s Union Jack flag designs and New York City items like New York Yankees ball caps and t-shirts are very popular too.
