May 21st – June 12th, 2022
North Andover Town Common
Massachusetts Ave., North Andover, MA

During May 21st through June 12th, 500 U.S. flags will stand posted in the Town Common to Commemorate Flag Day. Significantly, North Andover’s roots stretch back over 130 years before the Continental Congress formally adopted the Stars and Stripes as the flag of a new nation. This historic community in Essex County has witnessed the growth of the United States from thirteen British American Colonies to a mighty nation as the histories of North Andover and the United Sates intertwine. The flag’s thirteen stripes symbolize the thirteen colonies that created the United States, and the stars displayed in the canton stand for fifty states united in aspirations and a common heritage.

This stirring display will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor Active-Duty Military, Fallen Servicemen & Women, First Responders, Education, Humanitarian, Heroes in Our Lives, all Veterans and our Hometown Heroes. Each flag represents an individual and tells a story. Flags may be sponsored to honor these individuals who have become our heroes.

The North Andover Field of Honor® display 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 making a donation.

This is an experience hard to describe, but never to be forgotten. We invite all to visit the North Andover Field of Honor® display and walk with us among the posted flags. The display is open to all without charge. Don’t miss it!

Thank You

Field of Honor: 500 flags represent those who have served

NORTH ANDOVER — It was a sunny Saturday in North Andover as folks jogged, walked or biked past the Commons. As people came through, their attention was drawn to a grouping of flags, each placed a few feet apart, 500 in total. Some only glanced, but others were drawn to the field.
