By the end of its 100-day journey, a single American flag shall have traveled 14,000 miles through 48 states — all by motorcycle.

The flag’s journey — called Patriot Tour 2011 — is an event that seeks to honor all members of the U.S. armed forces; past, present and living or dead, as well as raise money for the families of wounded veterans.

The tour passed through Baton Rouge on Saturday, marking the second time the Baton Rouge Chapter 1671 of the Harley Owners Group has carried the flag to the next leg of its tour.

More than 150,000 riders are expected to participate in the event nationwide.
