For Lack of a Better Flag

Not having a U.S. flag to raise on America's centennial 1876 birthday celebration, what did the folks of Escalate, Utah substitute with?
a.                  A striped wagon cover
b.                  Striped bed sheet
c.                   Striped Navajo blanket
d.                  Striped quilt
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  Stacked parking
ZCMI was one of the first to build a giant parking garage of the sort in which each car is placed in a virtual elevator cab of its own and stored in stacks, available at the press of a button.
