Flags for Honor is a celebration presented by the FBI Cleveland Citizens Academy Alumni Association to honor American heroes, mentors, and loved ones. Donations, sponsorships, and flag dedications help us create a brilliant display of American flags that is dedicated to each event’s honorees. Honorees often include past or present American military personnel, veterans, law enforcement officers, firefighters, first responders, healthcare providers, mentors, teachers, and many other everyday heroes.
The flags will be displayed in Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio on the weekend of Patriot Day, Sept. 11-13, in honor of the individuals who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
50% of all proceeds will be split equally between MedWish and Medworks. MedWish and Medworks are supporting our local communities on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic by providing essential medical supplies, protective gear, food, and healthcare services. The remaining 50% of proceeds will benefit the FBI Cleveland Citizens Academy Alumni Association to help to cover our costs for this event, along with supporting our mission of creating safer communities in Northeast Ohio and helping to encourage appreciation for law enforcement.
Flags are also displayed year-round in our Virtual Flag Dedication. We recognize both current and past honorees in our Virtual Flag Dedication. Also, on our interactive Honoree Map, each flag displays the name, location, and description of the honoree.
