Larry Holcroft, the manager of the Barnes Wheaton General Motors dealership where the flag flies, said it’s not cheap to replace.

“This particular storm, it’s gonna be a whole flag that needs to be required, and typically it’s about 6,000 bucks,” he said.

Holcroft added the landmark flies 280 feet in the air.
