37,000 Flags on Display on A Hill In The Boston Public Garden

We had a great day in Boston walking around The Boston Public Garden. On the hill we came across 37,000 flags. Each one representing a Massachusetts fallen Hero. I thought it was a interesting display where people can reflect on the meaning of Memorial Day.

This display of flags is presented on the hill in the Boston Public Gargen. It was a very impressive sight for sure, and when you read what was on the sign you will understand.

Below is was written on a sign by the display of flags…

To all that served or are currently serving. Thank you for your service.

“Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations, that we have forgotten, as a people, the cost of a free and undivided Republic,”
– General John A. Logan, Grand Army of the Republic, May 5, 1868

Memorial Day isn’t just another holiday.

This garden of 37,000 flags was planted in memory of every fallen Massachusetts service member from the Revolutionary War to the present. These flags will be on display throughout memorial Day weekend for your observation and reflections. Please remember and honor the ultimate sacrifices of our local heroes.
