Become a Flag Collector
Flag Collectors: A pre-registered group of volunteers who contribute to the pick-up of the flags that were placed during MN Remembers.
Flags for Fort Snelling invites you to join us for the recovery of our American flags for future Memorial Days to come. In keeping with cemetery care regulations, volunteers will be returning to Fort Snelling to collect, clean, and carefully store salvageable American flags.
Care should always be exercised when handling the American flag, protecting it from getting soiled or damaged. If a flag has touched the ground, it will need to be inspected for display standards and assigned for either storage or destruction.
The flag collection is an important part of the Flags for Fort Snelling mission in making the Minnesota Remembers Memorial Weekend an honored tradition for generations to come.
Please Note: The date and time for Flag Collection will be announced during MN Remembers.
