Atlanta Area Rotary Club Flag Service


By Kate Stow

Honor your veteran with a gift of an American Flag placed in their yard six times a year!

The Atlanta Area Rotary Club offers a flag service in the Atlanta city limits. An American flag will be placed in front of your home or business during six holidays for a cost of $40 a year.

The flags will be 3×5, affixed to poles that will be placed in the front yard at the curb. Price Hardware has donated metal pipe that will be drilled into the ground for the flagpole to be dropped into. The flags will be picked up after each holiday. This is the same program used in areas such as Jefferson and Texarkana.

Members of the AARC will place flags on the following dates: President’s Day (third Monday in February), Memorial Day (last Monday in May), Flag Day June 14, Independence Day July 4, September 11, and Veteran’s Day November 11.

If you wish to have a flag placed in your yard to honor a specific veteran, we will post that on the AARC Facebook page upon receipt of your payment. You can have more than one flag. 

Annual cost for multiple flags: 2-4 = $35 each; 5-9 = $30 each; 10-19 =$25 each; 20+ = $20 each.

This AARC fundraiser will be used to fund scholarships given annually to local graduating high school students, as well as to help fund other Rotary projects. Since its founding in 1926, the AARC has awarded millions of dollars in scholarships, at an average of $8,000 a year.
