The flag site exits because of the vision and dedication of prior Committees with the generosity of the citizens of Somerset County, PA.
The current Committee is committed to the long-term maintenance of the flag site,
which is dedicated to all Somerset County veterans and to the flag pole which is dedicated to the Flight 93 heroes
If successful, our work will never be finished.

Welcome
To the official site of the Somerset County Flag Committee, Inc.

Big Flag 2016

Our Big Flag
30 ft by 60 ft
The large flag was lowered for the winter.
The committee voted to run a trial program to fly a smaller flag during the winter months.
     We know:
          The winter months are extremely damaging to the large flags.
          They require 4 to 6 guys to raise and lower.
          The large flags are expensive to replace and repair.
          We all miss the flag when it is down.

Today we raised a 12 foot by 18 foot nylon flag.
     It will be easier to lower and raise if we have enough notice of high winds and/or ice.
     One person can lower and raise the flag, if necessary - two preferred.
     Replacement and repairs will be more affordable.
     We hope this will allow us to keep a flag flying all year.
Small Flag 2016
