Slow loading background image

Programming
Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 3 Days

I am working on a web site that has an American flag set as the background image. When the website is opened for the first time the background image opens very slowly creeping down the page until it's fully loaded and visible.

I have been on other sites that have massive background images and they load almost instantaneously?? Are they being somehow pre loaded and if so how can I accomplish that. 

Thank you
