Destin Flag in the Guinness Book of World Records
Our newly famous Destin landmark was officially dedicated in April to honor our U.S. Armed Forces and all first responders who watch over and protect our communities. Internationally marine life artist Wyland was on hand for the dedication of the worldâ€™s largest painted American flag mural. Itâ€™s an impressive 3.8 acres in size, located on the roof of Legendary Marina at the foot of the Destin Mid-Bay Bridge.
Wyland and his Wyland Foundation, a non-profit public charity, applied to the Guinness World Book of Records to receive the world record status of worldâ€™s largest American flag. The project was sponsored by Legendary Marine and Sherwin Williams.
This monumental work of art is especially inspirational because of the major military presence in Northwest Florida. Eglin Air Force Base, one of the largest bases in the world, is located just across the Choctawhatchee Bay. Military bases are also located in neighboring cities of Pensacola and Panama City.
When planes pass over, the huge flag mural can be viewed by military, commercial, and private pilots as they fly over the area.
