Creating an awe-inspiring panorama, United States flags will fly in a solemn formation at Olde Dominion Agriculture Complex during July 3rd through July 24th, 2021.  This stirring display of 350 flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes.  Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story.  Flags may be sponsored to honor individuals currently serving in our Military, Veterans, First Responders, Educators, Healthcare worker, Community Volunteers and Hometown Heroes.  This unique event is the perfect opportunity for all of us to remember and honor our many heroes.

The Stars & Stripes reminds us of who we are as a people.  Americans meet the challenges of history and overcome hardships becoming by stronger.  That is just who we are.  The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.
