Largest American flag in Washington state flies proudly at truck stop


Shree’s Truck Stop in Thorp, Washington is patriotically showing off the largest American flag in the state at their newest location.

The massive flag was installed on-site earlier this week. It weighs 150 lbs. and is 40 ft. by 80 ft. The flag pole is 150 ft. tall.

Shree’s has two businesses along I-90, one in George where and its newest location in Thorp, just west of Ellensburg.

Shree’s Truck Stop is owned by Sanjay Saini and his wife, Ekta. The couple immigrated from India to America in 1999 and founded Shree Investments in 2005.

The truck stop is named after their daughter, Shree Saini.

“This massive flag is a symbol of our gratefulness to the United States of America,” said Shree in a Facebook post. “This flag will remain here as a symbol of our Family’s appreciation to America, even long after my family will be gone.”

To express our LOVE and GRATITUDE towards our country, my family is installing ONE of the LARGEST #AMERICANFLAGS, right…

The Saini family was informed that the American flag they were installing was the biggest in Washington state and also one of the biggest in the country.

“This flag is our salute to America, this flag is our way to say thanks to America and take pride in being American citizens. This flag will remain long after we will be gone. America is the greatest country on this earth and we are very fortunate to call this great country our home,” Shree’s owner Ekta Saini told iFIBER ONE News Tuesday morning.
