Hi Robo  -

Sorry I missed it - I even searched before I posted and somehow overlooked it! Thanks for posting.

John - the flag is on their homepage. If you click the link and go to "support us" and then "legalize beekeeping" you should see it right on that page.

I always wondered what beekeeping was like in NYC.  I guess I now know.
