The Big Flag

In 2009 a private citizen who wished to give something back to the community donated funds to the City for a flag pole capable of supporting a large 30 by 60 feet United States Flag. The flag is located on Pacific Avenue between Laurel and Maple Streets. Forest Grove Fire and Rescue became the keepers of the flag, lowering it to half-mast when ordered, replacing it when needed, and coordinating events under it to honor the greater meaning of the flag in our society.
