Destin Landmark: World’s Largest U.S. Flag

The Florida Gulf Coast is home to several military installations with bases located from Pensacola to Panama City. The area is also home to many retirees from all branches of service.

If you are ever lucky enough to fly over Destin, Florida, you might be able to spot the Legendary Marine roof mural which proclaims “God Bless America.”

  • The mural is located on top of the marine building located on the south side of the Destin Mid-Bay Bridge. The side of the building features Wyland Whaling Wall #88, a project headed by the internationally known marine artist Wyland.
  • Wyland created the one-acre American flag on the roof of the marina as a salute to the armed forces stationed in the area including Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field Air Force Base.
  • The flag has been named the world’s largest flag mural by the Guinness Book of World Records.
