Puerto Rican Community Makeover!

If you walk along 93rd Street and Columbus Avenue in Manhattan and look up...you will see many Puerto Rican Flags tied to a "cable or clothes line" crossing Columbus Avenue. It is a beautiful sight; you can tell that the flags have been waving in the wind for years as a testiment of our presence. However, many of the flags were worn beyond recognition.

Do we need a campaign to replace the Puerto Rican Flags in the neighborhood with brand new, clean Puerto Rican Flags or add the new flags to the existing flags? Would it create a surge of pride within our community or would there be significant resistance from the constantly changing demographic.
