Massive ‘bouquet’ unites states on Constitution Day [photos]

    Ninety stars assembled into a giant “bouquet” adorn the front lawn of the National Consitution Center.

    The red, white and blue gifts from 46 states, Puerto Rico and the U.K. have been woven with flowers to create the display celebrating the 225th anniversary of the Constitution.

    But the 15-foot pop-up is just the beginning.

    The day-long celebration also includes a reading of the preamble, a flag commemoration, a naturalization ceremony for 50 immigrants and a panel on Pennsylvania’s voter ID law.
