The Bismarck Optimist Club is introducing an exciting new program this Memorial Day called 'The Avenue of Flags', where American flags will fly proudly along one of the busiest stretches in Bismarck to serve as a visual tribute to our nation. Flags will be collected and flown for the following holidays:

  • Memorial Day
  • Flag Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Veteran's Day

The first annual 'Avenue of Flags' will take place on Monday, May 27 (Memorial Day), where a collection of flags will be flown on 10 foot flagpoles along both sides of State Street to the south entrance of the ND State Capitol.

The club will place all the flags along the route before dawn and retrieve them at dusk.
