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
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.

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