  • Avenue of Flags


On Veterans Day weekend, the Andersonville National Historic Site will display The Avenue of Flags, a multiplicity of U.S. flags on both sides of the principal avenue or drive that leads from the main entrance gate into the cemetery. The Avenue of Flags reinforces patriotism, national pride and represents a visible, bold and proud display of flags.

In most cases, the Avenue of Flags is only flown on days of special ceremonial significance such as Memorial Day. At Andersonville National Cemetery, the Avenue of Flags display is arrayed five times each year: for the National Former POW Recognition Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, National POW/MIA Recognition Day and Veterans Day weekends.
