The iconic Plastic Pink Flamingo lawn ornament was launched during 1957 in Leominster, Massachusetts and was sold beginning in 1958. The omnipresent flamingo became a cultural American icon over the years, the inspiration for films, such as the campy smash success, 1972's "Pink Flamingos," produced by John Waters, and in 2011, Disney featured "Featherstone," a plastic pink flamingo yard ornament in the film, "Gnomeo and Juliet."
