Memorial Day – Monday May 29
Well, the good weather has finally arrived here in San Diego and with it comes the unofficial start of our summer season, Memorial Day. At Sunward Flag, Memorial Day means it’s time to remember those Americans who died serving our country while in the Armed Forces. We honor them by lowering the flag at Liberty Station to half mast at dawn on this day and then returning it to full mast at noon.
This prominent 20′ x 30′ flag flies on a 110′ flagpole in the center of a former Marine training center. The military and civilian people who now frequent this area’s parks and restaurants all honor and acknowledge the symbolism of this magnificent flag display and are proud to see it flying.
As the unofficial launch of summer, Memorial Day is a time to break out the grills, dust off the lawn chairs and take in a parade. If you are in the San Diego area this Memorial Day and want a bit of “local” flavor, be sure to stop by the 2017 Kensington Annual Memorial Day Parade. You are sure to see lots of flag toting tots, bands, puppies, vintage cars and lots of good old American spirit.
Be sure to let us know how we can help you to decorate your home or business for Memorial Day and the flag days ahead!
