Communities choose the Field of Honor® designation for their Colonial Flag Foundation event as this may allow a wider range of themes. While both living and dead can be honored by both Healing Field® and Field of Honor® flag display events, the Field of Honor® designation may fit more comfortably for events that focus on a wide range of living honorees.
Nevertheless, Field of Honor® displays are not limited to honoring the living. Any of the ideas listed for Healing Field® displays may also have application for a Field of Honor® event. The question of which designation to use relates to what a local host committee feels is most appropriate.
While providing a inspiring event for the community, a Field of Honor® flag display event is a proven fundraising platform pays for itself while successfully raising money for local charities.
