Flags Across America® - Description

Flags Across America® is a volunteer program for communities across the nation. It is aimed at educating young people about the Flag of the United States of America. The program is designed and developed to create awe-inspiring, educational civic and educational Flag Day celebrations across the country.  The intent of these celebrations is to elevate Americans to ever greater heights of commitment to flag and country.
