San Francisco’s Hayes Valley Flag Wall

More from Bay Area Flag Report by Ted Kaye, in VexTab #49:

540 Laguna St., San Francisco
540 Laguna St., San Francisco

In San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood, Joe Theisen spruced up his building at 540 Laguna St. with 33 holes in the façade and first famously displayed the flags of all 2014 World Cup countries (plus Ireland).  In September new flags went up.

Now referred to as “the Flag Wall” (or, less popularly, “the House of Holes”), the building currently flies 10 flags that spell out “Hayes Valley” (two Ls share a flag) and 23 flags designed by artists affiliated with the nearby Hayes Valley Art Coalition.
