Stars & Stripes

As an installation for a new upscale dining and retail development, the 'Independence' Fireball celebrates a unique moment in American history. The imagery features the original flag with its 13 stars in an explosion of fireworks that mark the year 1777; a bald eagle rises above a field of maize, all set in a historical landscape of dairy farms and horse pastures, surrounded by the Watchung Mountain range.

“On April 4th, 1749, a Royal Charter was signed creating Bridgewater Township on behalf of King George II of England. George Washington and his army were encamped along the Middle Brook in the Watchung Mountains in June 1777, when Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes to be the official flag of the United States of America, thus originating Bridgewater’s claim to be the place where the flag first flew.”

The ‘Stars and Stripes’ Fireball is designed to engage visitors to the colorful history of Bridgewater Township and the pride of place the community enjoys.

The 'Stars and Stripes' Fireball is 58" in diameter and designed to accommodate a propane burner assembly. It has a classic barn red powder coat finish to be highly durable and maintain its color.
