American Flags Will Line Congress St.
American flags will be lining Congress Street on Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4th, and Veterans Day, as the result of a partnership with the American Legion Post 17, Portland's Downtown District, and the City of Portland.

The Adopt-A-Flag Program has been established to reinstitute the time-honored tradition. The flags will be hung during these holidays on 51 light poles on Congress Street - from the Central Fire Station to Longfellow Square.

The first display of flags flying over Congress Street will be in November, for the Veterans Day Parade.

For $100 per flag set, individuals, clubs, and businesses can Adopt-A-Flag in memory of or in honor of someone special, or as a tribute to the country. The names and dedications of all donors will be featured on and as a link on the City's website

For more information or to adopt an American flag call Portland's Downtown District at 772-6828.
