The Man Behind The Flags

He is a man on a mission, and you have probably seen him while driving along Riverside drive in Evansville.
 
Billy Stewart is 67 years old and commonly known as Flag Man.
 
He has been standing along the river surrounded by flags for six years.
 
Billy has become a community symbol of patriotism, but many drive by and wave without knowing his story.
 
Billy stands outside up to 3 days a week , rain or shine for hours at a time chanting and proudly waving the American flag.
 
He says he wants people to remember to protect America and defend the Constitution.
 
"Protect America" said Billy "because we can't depend on Trump or Clinton. They may mean well but it is going to take us people and soldiers to protect this country."
