Flag Day is such an important way to celebrate our country and Vancouver’s strong commitment to patriotism,” said Bruce Davidson, President of Davidson & Associates Insurance. “We are honored to offer new “Stars and Stripes” to our residents and to sponsor in Flag Day events at Fort Vancouver on June 14.”

History of Flag Day 

The Trust began producing Flag Day as one of its Celebrate Freedom programs in 2001, emphasizing the importance of citizenship throughout our community. The celebration is held at 3:30 p.m., so that the program may coincide with the Annual National Pause for the Pledge of Allegiance, in which people all over the country pause and recite the Pledge of Allegiance in unison.

An important component to the event is student engagement. Though Flag Day takes place at the very end of the school year, students have been able to participate in the event through historical reenactments and history quizzes. In 2010, the Clark County Mayors’ Patriotic Tie Competition was developed and Mayors from Clark County cities participate and bring supporters from their cities to attend the event.

Average attendance is 250-400 (weather depending).
