About this image
Each flag is a hand-painted (acrylic paint on a black nylon flag with brass grommets) re-creation of the flag that flew over Bandley 3, the Macintosh building at Apple, Inc. in 1983. Susan Kare painted the original in response to one of Steve Job’s slogans at a Macintosh offsite: “It’s better to be a pirate than join the navy.” She will custom paint a similar version for you on a 3’ x 5’ or 4’ x 6’ flag. Note: these are fine art paintings intended for indoor display (not outdoor flagpoles). Some paint can be seen on the reverse side.
