The Burgee flying on the flag pole at Gallery 400
Documentary photos, 2006
During April, 2006, the MTBE official burgee underwent a rigorous equipment test as it flew for seven days in front of the University of Illinois Gallery 400 as part of Phillip Von Zweck's installation, Temporary Allegiance. The flag endured a series of thunderstorms, torrential downpours, and gusts of wind up to 20-25 knots per hour. It shows no sign of wear or stress.
