THE HISTORY OF SCIENTOLOGYS EXPANSION
The Flag Land Base Established
Another milestone for 1975 was the landing of the Sea Organization and establishment of the Flag Land Base in Clearwater, Florida. Located in the eleven-story Fort Harrison Hotel and the nearby Clearwater Bank Building, the Flag Land Base constituted the largest single Scientology organization in history. As the spiritual headquarters of the Church and the only place where preclears could receive the special L Rundowns, it was soon drawing Scientologists from all over the world.
Nineteen seventy-five also saw the opening of Chicagos Church of Scientology, another church in Philadelphia and the first Canadian paperback edition of Dianetics.
A new Spanish translation of Dianetics was released in Mexico in 1976, and some
12 million television viewers watched as Hispanic celebrities told of its benefits.
