Is 6,600 people enough to make the largest human flag?

 They say this is the largest human version of an American flag.

More than 6,600 Maryland students and chaperones created a flag with 15 stars and 15 stripes at Fort McHenry National Monument & Historic Shrine in Baltimore on Tuesday.

It was the 200th birthday of the national anthem, which takes its lyrics from Francis Scott Key's poem "Defense of Fort M/Henry," which was written during the 1814 battle there in  the War of 1812.

In 1914, Fort McHenry saw the creation of a Living Flag by 6,500 participants in honor of the Centennial.
