This past Wednesday, July 1st, Lego’s Master Builders gathered at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. to build an American flag made completely out of Lego bricks.
The event was to celebrate the opening of the museum’s Innovation Wing, and visitors were invited to help with the build. Lego Master Builder Chris Steininger led the project.

- Weight – 546 pounds
- Number of LEGO bricks – 109,200
- 16 hours to design
