SAVING HALLOWED GROUND
FOLLOW THE FLAG
Saving Hallowed Ground's Follow The Flag Program, part of our effort to commemorate the National World War I Centennial, delivers or ships our 20’ x 30’ American Flag to communities across the nation and around the world for ceremonial use. Participants receive a kit including the flag, white gloves, and directions for the flag’s unfurling and folding, allowing communities to use the flag to commemorate the sacrifices of soldiers and citizens during World War I. Saving Hallowed Ground requires a sponsorship donation of $280 for a "Directed" flag ceremony (including a presence from Saving Hallowed Ground), or of $180 for a "Remote" ceremony. The flag has appeared at more than 30 events and has been handled by more than 1,000 people! Follow the flag using the map below, and view photos of previous flag-folding ceremonies.
