SAN DIEGO — Workers from Casino Pauma hang a 25-by-55-foot American flag last week from the casino’s main sign in Pauma Valley. The flag was supplied by Albert Kapitanski, who worked with tribal and casino officials to arrange the display of the flag from Wednesday to Monday to mark Veterans Day.
“It was the only place big enough to hang it,” Kapitanski said. Kapitanski is the son of Alex Kapitanski, the well-known Oceanside “Flag Man” who, before his death in February, supplied American flags for more than 30,000 ceremonies, memorials and other events in and around the North County area.
