A reader asks: “What are those magnolia- purple and gold flags? I see them everywhere. What is the story? They seem especially numerous in Fairmount?”
Last spring, right before the park dedication at Q and 23rd Streets, the flags were given to the homeowners of houses that have been built or restored by Better Housing Coalition. The reason that these flags are so prevalent in Fairmount is because much of southern Fairmount is in one of the city’s Neighborhood’s in Bloom program.
