The flag atop the Wrigley Field rooftop honor Cubs teams of the past and great moments/players/personalities in franchise history. Down the left field line, flags represent the "modern" Cubs playoff teams of 1906, 1907, 1908, 1910, 1918, 1929, 1932, 1935, 1938, 1945, 1984, 1989, 1998. Down the right field line are flags honoring Hack Wilson (191 RBI), Andre Dawson's MVP season (#8), Mark Grace leading the 1990s in hits (#17), Kerry Wood's 20 strikeout game, Greg Maddux's 300 wins, Fergie Jenkins Cy Young, Sammy Sosa's 66 HRs. Also there is a flag to honor former team owner P.K. Wrigley and a #42 flag for Jackie Robinson. Ed H.

There are not specific sizes for the American flag, but for government specific flags, the hoist (width/height) to fly (length) ratio is 1:1.9. For example, if the flag is 5' tall, the length should be 9.5' long (5*1.9=9.5). Most flags are made to "general" flag hoist-to-fly ratios. These flags are often 2x3', 3'x5', 4'x6', etc.

It means that there is a loose ball on the field
