After 41 years, our Board, staff, patriotic partners and volunteers are stepping down. Our full website is officially closed, but the generous education resources produced over those years are available until January 31, 2024 on this page for you: our teachers, parents, students and all interested. It has been an honor and a privilege to provide for educators across the country the message of the American Flag. Headquartered in Baltimore, birthplace of the Star-Spangled Banner, it has been a pleasure to provide many activities, including Living American Flags held at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, Living American Flags and a Parade of State Flags held onsite at elementary schools, as well as fulfilling a congressional mandate to promote the annual National Pause for the Pledge of Allegiance on National Flag Day June 14 at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine at 7:00 p.m. EST. The lessons focus on the lives of outstanding American citizens, flag etiquette, and patriotic events and symbols. To our educators across the United States, thank you for teaching our children – students about the importance of the American Flag…and patriotism.
