Red, white and blew.

A Florida man took his national pride to the next level by proudly waving an American flag amid fierce winds and driving rain brought upon by Hurricane Ian.

The man, who asked to be identified as Michael, posted a video of the stunt to Twitter and said he was inspired by a similar act he saw on the internet.

“I have seen the GIF of someone doing this before and figured it would be fun to do it,” Michael told The Post.

The video was taken shortly after noon in Cape Coral, about 10 miles from Fort Myers, which has been inundated with flood water from heavy rain and storm surge.

In the hours since taking the video, the conditions in the area have significantly deteriorated.

“The wind had picked up significantly now and there has been damage to the house and the nearby neighbors from debris,” Michael said, adding that he and his family are doing well.

“Everybody is safe and that’s the most important thing.”
