Join the Coral Springs Veterans Coalition for the annual Flag Day ceremony, where they will conduct a ceremony to dispose of unserviceable U.S. flags.
Flag Day honors a June 14, 1777, resolution from the Second Continental Congress, which called for an official United States flag.
Various figures promoted the recognition of the Flag on June 14th throughout the 1800s. It was not until May 30, 1916, that President Woodrow Wilson Proclaimed June 14th as Flag Day. Then, in 1949 President Harry Truman signed it permanently into law.
The Flag Day Ceremony is held on Monday, June 14, 2021, at 09:00 a.m. at Veterans Park, 8601 Royal Palm Blvd., Coral Springs.
Residents who would like to discard tattered U.S. flags properly can drop them off in front of the Coral Springs Gymnasium located at 2501 Coral Springs Drive.
