Justin Riggins and a team of helpers used 30 gallons of paint to create the 10,686-square-foot flag. Video from May 2 shows the completed flag on Riggins’ property.

“People need some positivity during the times we are in,” Riggins told local media. “I wanted to honor the ones protecting us and our country. A tribute to our front line health care that are keeping us healthy.”

The project took two hours to set up and five hours to paint over a stretch of two days
