Big Flag Unveiled On Beach

Sunshine and temperatures in the 80's brought the crowds to Ocean City this Memorial Day weekend.

On Memorial Day afternoon, more than 250 people unfurled a giant American flag on the beach near Division Street.

The flag is 45,000 square feet and weighs 850 pounds, making it one of the largest ceremonial American flags in the country.

Mayor Rick Meehan told WBAL's Maryland's Morning News that the weather and plenty of free events have brought the crowds to the resort town for the weekend.
