White flags on George Washington Bridge a tribute to John A. Roebling
It seems that somehow, everything has a connection to New Jersey.
Remember the white flags that were put up on the Brooklyn Bridge in place of the American Flags that normally stand? Two German artists are claiming that they were behind the act, and the reason why they put up the flags hold a connection to the Garden State. The artist said the white flags were placed in tribute of John A. Roebling, who designed the Brooklyn Bridge.
John Roebling’s son is Charles Roebling – founder of Roebling in Florence Township in South Jersey. The town is home to The Roebling Museum, a museum dedicated to the work of John A. Roebling.
Although other groups are admitting they were responsible for the flag switch, the artists are saying they have video footage to back their claim.
