    Flags for Honor is an annual event where you can dedicate a beautiful American flag to show your appreciation for those who have made an impact in your life by helping, guiding, or inspiring you. The vibrant display of American Flags is erected as a patriotic tribute to honorees. Current and past honorees are also acknowledged in our Virtual Flag Dedication with an interactive Honoree Map that displays the name, location, and description of each year’s honorees.

    Community members, businesses, and organizations love honoring their heroes, mentors, and loved ones with Flags for Honor. Each year, flags are placed in honor of local heroes, including servicemen and women, first responders, teachers, family members, EMTs, doctors and hospital workers, or anyone who has been a source of inspiration. The 2020 Flags for Honor event will certainly thank and salute those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The flags will be proudly erected in Edgewater Park in Cleveland, Ohio. The flags will be displayed on the weekend of Patriot Day, Sept. 11-13, in honor of the individuals who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. The patriotic display of American flags can also be observed while driving down Route 20.

    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% will benefit the FBI Cleveland Citizens Academy Alumni Association to cover event costs, along with supporting our mission of creating safer communities in Northeast Ohio and helping to encourage appreciation for law enforcement.
