Join us for Flag Exchange 2024 at Alan Galvez Insurance

This event is designed to honor our flag, Flag Day and the many men and women who have served our flag, both present and past.

In 2023 we handed out approximately 80 flags and collected well over 100.  

Here are the details about our flag exchange

Please join us for our FREE flag exchange event. From June 10-14, bring your tattered American flag to our office and exchange for a new 3′ x 5′ one (flags are purchased through American Legion Flag & Emblem). Please note: we are limiting NEW flags to 2 per household, as we have a limited supply.

You can come anytime during our office hours- Monday through Friday 9am-12pm and 1pm-5pm.

All tattered flags will be given to the American Legion for proper disposal.

What is Flag Day?

On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white” and that “the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation” (13 is for the original 13 colonies).

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson, marked the anniversary of this resolution by establishing June 14 as Flag Day.

In 1949, Congress permanently established the date as National Flag Day.

The week of June 14 is called National Flag Week and all Americans are encouraged to fly U.S. flags during that week.
