Military Heroes Garden of Flags on the Boston Common 2020 - VIRTUAL
Please note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, most large gatherings, including annual festivals, parades and concerts are cancelled or will be held virtually through Labor Day 2020.
Every Memorial Day weekend, the MA Military Heroes organization plants a Garden of 37,000 Flags in front of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Boston Common to commemorate the Massachusetts service members who have given their lives to defend the United States and our freedom.
After much discussion and reflection on public health guidance for gatherings at this time, we have decided to cancel the large volunteer flag garden project, as we believe that is the safest course of action right now.
Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund is committed to facilitating some type of public tribute to the fallen in Boston for Memorial Day, and we are still working out those details.
We will also host our “Remembering & Honoring Massachusetts Military Heroes” roll call of the fallen ceremony online. This ceremony will still take place on Thursday, May 21st at 10:30am. The ceremony will be private to MMHF families only, and will feature remarks from dignitaries, a poetry reading and the reading of names of the Commonwealth’s post 9/11 fallen.
This year, we ask members of the Commonwealth to help us replicate our Boston Common tribute in cities and towns across our state. Supporters can participate in a “Virtual Flag Garden” by printing this flag graphic and placing it in windows over Memorial Day weekend, along with any available flags on front lawns.
