A man named Don Featherstone designed the first pink flamingo garden stakes in 1957. At the time they cost $2.76 a pair and were very popular in working class sub-division housing. Pink flamingos have also been recognized as a spirit animal since ancient times; they symbolize a need to let go of negativity in your life. The Bahama’s national bird is the flamingo. Ancient Romans considered the birds a delicacy, and ancient Egyptians worshipped it as a god of Egypt! The word Flamingo comes from Latin Flamenco meaning “brightly colored”. The flamingo’s color actually comes from tiny pink crustaceans in their diet. And pink flamingos are classified as wading birds, but these beautiful creatures are strong swimmers and powerful fliers.
