Proposed U.S. Flag In Downtown Miami Would Be Tallest In North America

Healthcare billionaire Mike Fernandez wants to build the tallest flagpole in North America in downtown Miami, according to the Miami Herald.

The flagpole would rise 400-feet and cost between $5 and $10 million to build. The flag itself would weigh 500 pounds.

City officials are currently scouting locations. Fernandez told the Herald that he prefers a site between the American Airlines Arena and Museum Park.
