Doral Arrowwood Celebrates Flag Day with a Botanical Work of Art

Rye Brook, NY, June 14, 2001: Doral Arrowwood Conference Resort has created a living salute to the anniversary of the adoption of our flag by planting a 20'x 40' replica of the stars and stripes made out of flowers. The flag is composed of red and white begonias and blue ageratums and is situated on the side of a beautifully landscaped knoll alongside Arrowwood's main driveway - visible to airplanes flying in and out of Westchester County Airport as well as visitors to the conference center and resort.

Doral Arrowwood's General Manager Joseph Crimmins states, "Creating this flag is our way of rekindling interest in this holiday, which celebrates the adoption of our flag by the Continental Congress of the Stars and Stripes on June 14, 1777, as the official flag of the United States of America. This special project is the latest feature to be added to Arrowwood's extraordinary landscape design."

Located on 114 acres in Westchester County, Doral Arrowwood is a 374-room conference resort which is nationally recognized for offering state-of-the-art meeting facilities, a full range of audio/visual equipment including web and video conferencing, professional meeting planners, conference services staff and on-site technicians.

It is also the home of the New Doral Arrowwood Golf Academy.
