For our 2020 Flags for Honor event, participants joined us over Patriot Day Weekend (Sept. 11 – 13) to celebrate distinguished members of our community. We created an awe-inspiring display of American flags based on the donations of community members, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and more. Honorees included:
- COVID-19 First Responders
- Law Enforcement Officers
- Active or Reserve U.S. Military Personnel
- U.S. Military Veterans
- Mentors, Teachers, and Coaches
- Healthcare Providers
- Social Workers
- And many other heroes!
The American flags were displayed at Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio from Sept. 11 – 13 in honor of the individuals who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. In the park, they were located along the walk to the pavilion, providing a beautiful drive-by viewing opportunity down Route 2.

The honorees are also recognized year-round in our Virtual Flag Dedication where they are acknowledged on the interactive Honoree Map. The flags were also live-streamed on the FBICLECAAA’s Facebook page, providing a terrific opportunity to observe and enjoy the patriotic display from anywhere in the world.
Proceeds helped us raise $6,000 for both MedWish and Medworks, two local nonprofit organizations that support our local communities on the front-lines of the COVID-19 pandemic by providing essential medical supplies, protective gear, food, and healthcare services. We are proud to have helped support their missions!
