Howard Li took a tour of the United States and brought an important travel buddy: an American flag.

Li made it his mission to capture footage of himself waving the star-spangled banner in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., and managed to achieve the patriotic feat in only one year, nine months and two days.

This video shows landmarks from each stop on the cross-country journey. Vermont’s Ben and Jerry’s factory, New Mexico’s hot air balloon festival and Idaho’s potato museum are just a few of the recognizable attractions from Li’s flag-waving spree. The stars and stripes even made it to the blustery peaks of Alaska.

Get a quick dose of American pride by living through Li’s yearlong quest in a mere two minutes.
