It's the work of Plymouth financial planner Chris Peplinski,

" target="_blank">who said on Twitter this week there is "Nothing More American Than creating an American flag to show one's patriotism."

He has form with unusual lawn designs, telling KARE 11 that he has previously mown a yin-yang symbol, an "ode to poker night" and carved his 5-year-old son's name into his back yard for his birthday.

"After my son's birthday when I made a design for him then he said, 'Daddy will you make an American flag for 4th of July it's America's birthday?' I'm like sure I'll do that," he told the TV station.

Happy Independence Day, Minnesota.
