The City of Savannah will raise what it calls "the biggest flag in the City" at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 3.

This American flag will be displayed atop a new 100 ft. flag pole which is being installed this week at the new Veterans Memorial Park, located on Abercorn Street/Highway 204 at the end of the Truman Parkway.

"The 30 ft. x 50 ft. flag will be raised with the help of the 3rd Infantry Division Color Guard. The 3rd ID Band will perform patriotic musical selections. Active duty military members, veterans and the public are encouraged to attend," a City spokesperson says.

City of Savannah Alderman Tony Thomas "has spearheaded this SPLOST-funded project. As the City continues to develop the park, plans include enhanced landscaping, a honor garden, parking area, and benches," the City says.
