These beautiful flags are installed with coordination between the Broadway Business Improvement District and the Boy's Scout Troop 156. They install the flags several times a year for different holidays. The city does not get involved.


Thank you, John. You know what happens when one assumes something. Appreciate the correction. I guess I can only give the city credit for the free parking day, right? :-)


This American Holiday Post reminds me of a recent News Article regarding BD. He was a part of the evacuation of people from Afghanistan.


Thank you Broadway BID and Boy Scouts!


The flags were very inspiring. I agree this is something special about Burlingame.


This segment of there ought to (not) be a law is noteworthy. Unless these flags were “approved by the city engineer”, the Broadway BID’s & the scouts’ brand of civil disobedience is something to be admired.

Burlingame Municipal Code

13.40.050 Parking meters and parking meter standards not to be used for certain purposes.
No person shall attach anything to or allow a bicycle, newsrack or any other article or thing to lean against a parking meter or a parking meter standard without the approval of the city engineer. (Ord. 1136 § 9, (1978))
