”The pink flamingo was first released in 1957, and immediately caught on due to the popularity of the color pink and the flamingo’s promise of an endless summer. As live flamingos were not readily available in New England, Featherstone reportedly relied on National Geographic photos to create the design for his polystyrene flamingos. The lawn decorations became so popular that in 1987, Featherstone Originals included a mold of Don’s signature to set it apart from generic versions.”
