Watch ‘Old Glory’ Go Up Tallest Flag Pole in Montana (VIDEO)
Subscribers of the YouTube channel for Montana's Tallest Flag said they got chills and were teary-eyed after watching a patriotic video showing crews assembling the structure.
The video posted on Sunday (11/7) called "Flag Raising Day," shows crews using a crane to lift the white flag pole into place, and then around 10 workers guided the pole over large bolts in the base.
After securing the tallest flagpole in the Treasure State to its base with heavy-duty nuts and bolts, one worker climbed the structure to secure ropes that will raise the American flag high into the big Montana sky.
Crews then attached the enormous flag to the ropes before two men began pulling Old Glory up into the air.
Images posted on the @MTTallestFlag Instagram page showed some cattle who were interested in what was happening on the land where they graze.
Lighting for the American flag was also completed at the site, according to a video on their Instagram.
As the dramatic drone video flies around the flagpole, the Star-Spangled Banner is played while the stars and stripes ripple in the wind.

Another YouTube was posted today (Wednesday 11/10) that showed a "labor of love" that went into building the flagpole, including welding, fastening rebar, concrete, and painting.
