A police officer was out on patrol at a college campus when something interesting hanging by a student’s apartment caught his attention.
The cop pulled over to inspect it and saw that it was the grand old flag outside a student’s porch.
From a distance, it looked like an ordinary American flag, but close-up there was something unique about it. A blue line was where one of the white lines should be in honor and support of law enforcement, reports US Herald.
The officer immediately snapped a picture of the flag with three college boys from Ohio State University Wooster standing underneath it.
The cop shared the patriotic photo on the Ohio Going Blue Facebook page and it instantly went viral.
“I have not personally seen anything like this on a college campus before, so this is too awesome not to share,” read the Facebook post. “Loving the thin blue line flag AND the blue porch light!”
Facebook users went wild over the picture and even managed to identify the three college students as Noah Adams, Seth Curl and Massimo F. Asturi.
It was later shared on the Facebook page, Support Police Officers, garnering over 8.2K likes and over 1K shares.
