#1845: FlaGas

Today’s invention is a flag made of two layers of the same material from which weather balloons are constructed.

This is very flexible and yet can contain helium for long periods.

Several small helium-filled spaces would be created when the two sheets were joined, located along the upper edge of the flag.

These would help support the (small) weight of the flag and allow it to ‘fly’ even when the windspeed was very low.
