“Avenue of Flags” has become an established
tradition in many cemeteries throughout the United States.
Cemetery - Fort Dodge, Iowa
| The “Avenue of Flags” display
is an ideal setting for honoring the Veterans of our Country.
With the permission of your local cemetery and the family
of the departed veteran, the 5 x 9½ ft. U. S. flag
that is given to them by the federal government can be mounted
on a flagpole and left in the care of the cemetery or local
veterans organization. On Memorial Day or other holidays
desired, the poles and flags can be displayed as above,
in honor of our country’s departed veterans. Normally
each flag is marked on the canvas heading of the flag with
the name of the veteran it honors.

Poles are light-weight, strong rust-proof aluminum tubing
(2" diameter). They stand 15 feet above ground, with
an 18" ground socket (plastic cap included). Poles
features eye-bolts with plastic snaps for mounting 5 x 8
ft. or 5 x 9½ ft. flags. Packaged in individual cartons,
with 3 sections for easy storing.
Installation and Use: Ground sockets are normally
cemented into the ground for easy installation of the pole

socket and are taken apart for easy storage. The U.S. flag
is mounted onto the top section of the pole with eye-bolts
and plastic Snaps, which are left on during storage. Note:
Do not put wet flags into storage. Allow flags to dry thoroughly.
