Did you know that a group of flamingos is called a “flamboyance?”  Isn’t that just terrific!?

Recently, the man who was the “inventor” of the pink flamingo lawn ornament passed away. Don Featherstone, in 1957, created the plastic pink flamingo for Union Products, a maker of plastic lawn ornaments. More details about his life and invention can be found in his New York Times obituary.

There are interesting trademarks to be found for just about anything… including pink flamingos!
