FLAG OF CROSSES

White crosses were brought to the road outside the private ranch of former president George Bush during the Camp Casey protest in 2005.  It began with Cindy Sheehan, mother of Casey Sheehan, who died in Iraq.  For months she pleaded for the president to talk to her to explain why her son had died. George Bush never spoke with her.

On August 15, 2005 an angry Texan drove his truck over the field of crosses, 

smearing tire tracks across them and the names of the dead on them.   The man was later arrested when an officer saw a cross wedged in the bumper of his vehicle as he sped away.  

 

Those crosses and names were later constructed in to the flag above.
