Our signature community building event! We and hundreds of volunteers create a majestic garden of flags on Boston Common for Memorial Day weekend. Each of the 37,000+ flags we plant at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument will represent every brave Massachusetts service member who gave his or her life defending our country since the Revolutionary War. The completed garden is a breathtaking tribute to the true meaning of Memorial Day and a powerful message of community support to the families of these fallen heroes that their sacrifices will never be forgotten.
We rely on donors and volunteers to create this display and to stand watch over them throughout Memorial Day weekend. More information about these opportunities can be found here.
Please also consider sponsoring a flag to help create this moving tribute and to care for bereaved military families year-round.
Thank you to all our 2018 Memorial Day Corporate Sponsors of our Flag Garden, with special appreciation to John Hancock for their key sponsorship and support.
