The pink flamingo is popular plastic lawn ornament that never goes out of style. Since the late 1950’s you can travel almost anywhere and see these bright pink long-necked birds decorating homes and businesses.
Why is the flamingo one of the most popular lawn ornaments?
Some folks believe that since the wading bird can stand on one leg it will bring “balance” to their lives.

It can be a landmark for directions (make a right at the house with the pink flamingo)
It’s bright, playful, and easy to decorate for holidays so it can stay out all year
