Red Waves

A circular flag that spins and billows when turned from below

Ever wonder what causes a flag to snap in a high wind? This outdoor exhibit has a circular "flag" that whips and waves as it turns. Spin the pole and watch the edges of the fabric move in waves, responding to the air that it is moving through. Even when there is no wind at all, this circular “flag” flutters in the breeze.
