Red, White and Blue

In honor of the Fourth of July holiday, we will be hanging the U.S. flag today in the center of the Atrium Lobby, where it will be proudly displayed through Labor Day.

This massive 17 x 30 foot U.S. flag is a sight to be seen and continues an old tradition of The Brown.  Historically, a 48-star flag was believed to have hung as early as the 1940s, which was then replaced with a 50-star flag that remained in the Lobby until 1996.  In honor of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which was held here in Denver, the hotel hung the current 50-star flag from July 3rd through the end of the Convention, representing the first time the flag had returned since 1996.  We look forward to carrying on this tradition for years to come.
