The display consists of three flags – the Bennington flag, the Betsy Ross flag and our current American flag. It also gives the history of our flags, providing viewers with information about the Flag Act of 1777 and procedures surrounding proper care. It was created by the county last November as a way to honor our veterans and our flags.
For the next two weeks Rye residents won’t have to travel far to see the display. It’s currently located at the Rye Free Reading Room and will be there until this Friday, September 20. From there, the flags will move to the Damiano Recreation Center, where they will be on display until next Friday, September 27, 2019.
