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 is used to identify a property ( just look for the porch with the bright pink flamingo)
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
Its tropical theme sends off good vibes of warmth, fun, and happiness
They are used for fundraisers, you can send a flock to the neighbor’s yard
It’s a Florida souvenir you can share with everyone
It’s a conversation piece in your front yard, letting neighbors know you are sociable
They are not one size fits all
These birds were first sold by Sears Roebuck in a 1958 catalog. Having a reputation at times for being “tacky”, no one can ever say they are not part of the iconic American landscape. Hundred of thousands are sold every year
