Memorial Day - Flag Garden

From Cape Ann to Cape Cod, from the Berkshires to Boston, we thank our veterans for their service and we honor those who have passed.

On Beacon Hill, volunteers have placed 37,000 flags to commemorate the brave Massachusetts men and women who have fallen while serving their country in the line of duty since the Revolutionary War.  This moving display is just one way to honor those who gave their lives.  Please take some time today to give thought to them, their families, and to those who still wear the uniform in service to our nation.

37,000 American flags on the Boston Common populate the “Flag Garden.”
