Our goal...It is the belief of the downtown Redmond Flag
Committee that flags should be flown on our city streets
during all appropriate holidays and other special
occasions (weather permitting). Since we would like this
to be a community endeavor as much as possible we hope all
area organizations, clubs, businesses and interested
individuals will join us in perpetuating Redmond, Oregon
as "Flag City, USA"!
Who we are...what we do! The downtown Redmond Flag
Committee is an ad hoc group of patriotic business people,
civic and veteran organizations, other community leaders
and individual volunteers. We have set a goal. We intend
to be known as "Flag City, USA". To reach this objective
we are lining the streets of Redmond with flags on various
patriotic days and holidays. "Lining the streets" with
flags requires two things: flags and manpower. If you look
closely at any of the flags you will see that each is
embroidered with a name. We encourage you to purchase your
own flag (see flag order form link to left). We depend on
your generosity and patriotism. Manpower takes the obvious
form of putting up and taking down the flags. There are
also other jobs such as drilling and cleaning flag holes
in the spring, washing flags, etc. This is provided by the
Committee and the various organizations and individuals
who wish to help in this effort.

Redmond, Oregon as: "Flag City USA" can be found HERE.
