Today is Wednesday March 14th, 2018 or Pi Day a day to celebrate mathematics. I wanted to take this idea and apply mathematics to flags. Uhhhhh… my thoughts exactly. So, I decided to see what city was the most patriotic or the most interested in the American flag. I decided to use Google Trends and the search term “American Flag” to see what city over the past year had been searching the phrase “American Flag” the most. Well, the results were a little surprising. Google provided me with 16 results and at the top was Washington. I know…I know Washington is a district not a city, don’t shoot the messenger. Here are the rest of the results.
So what do these numbers mean? Well, I’ll leave it to Google to explain- (Interest by Region: Values are calculated on a scale from 0 to 100, where 100 is the location with the most popularity as a fraction of total searches in that location, a value of 50 indicates a location which is half as popular. A value of 0 indicates a location where there was not enough data for this term). Listed are the top ten results. What do you think? Missing your city? The remaining six results provided below.
London? That’s right, according to Google Trends London scored a 14 to round out the city results for the search term “American Flag” over the past year. Flag envy? General curiosity? Whatever the case this was a surprising and interesting discovery. Merci London for your interest and Happy Pi Day!
Don’t believe me?
