“One Thousand Flags Over Mesquite” will fly proudly for the 14th time creating a stunning panorama that has become a Clark County cherished event each November. Timed to coincide with Veterans Day, this event reflects the hard work and dedication of Mesquite’s Exchange Club. Club members and volunteers honor the Stars & Stripes through their service to the community, while making it possible for flag sponsors to pay tribute to those who have honored the flag through their lives of service and sacrifice. In this way, the flag honors those who have honored the flag.

Each flag honors an individual and tell one of the many stories that combined give Old Glory its meaning. Walking amid the posted flags, visitors to Mesquite’s Field of Honor® formation of flags experience emotions that are difficult to explain but not to be forgotten.

The Mesquite Field of Honor® is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or by making a donation.
