U.S. Flag Program – FAQs

Return to Flag Program Home

What if I purchase the US Flag Service midyear?
Your service will start on the next flag holiday and continue until you have received 5 flag installations.  Please note: your subscription order must be received no fewer than 5 business days before the next flag holiday in order to have a flag installed on that day. Subscriptions received after that time will begin on the following flag holiday.

What subscription options do you offer?
We offer 2 options: a 1-year subscription for $50, or a 2-year subscription for $100. We also accept donations.

Can I have more than one flag in my yard?
You may request multiple flags using the online payment form. Once you select the desired length of your subscription, a new option will appear, asking how many flags you would like to receive each holiday.

Is it possible to gift a flag subscription to someone else?
Yes! Flag subscriptions are wonderful gifts to honor veterans, family members, friends, and neighbors. Please enter the recipient’s name and address, followed by your contact information. Note that the recipient must be located in the Franklin High School zone. If not, you will need to contact the high school band program for which the address is zoned.

May I order a flag for my business?
We are happy to place a flag at your place of business as long as it is located in the Franklin High School zone. If it is not, you will need to contact the high school band program for which the address is zoned.

How will the flag be mounted in my yard?
We will insert a plastic spike approximately 6 inches deep into your lawn, and approximately 2 feet back from the
curb. We then place the flagpole onto the spike. This creates a firm base that is durable for one day, and which
can easily be removed with minimal impact to your lawn.

Can I choose where the flag is placed in my yard?
We will try to place your flag in line with your front door, approximately 2 feet back from the curb. If you
would prefer a different specific location, please indicate this on your order form. If you have irrigation or an
electric pet fence that will be affected at 2 feet back from the curb, please indicate this on your order form so
we can be aware of it.

What if there is no flag in my yard on the expected holiday?
Occasionally a yard will get missed. If this should happen, please email us at fhsflag@gmail.com to let us know
and we will get a flag out to you ASAP! Should this not happen in a timely fashion, we will extend your
subscription to include 5 holidays.

How do I renew the service for another year?
We will send you an email offering you the option to renew for another year. Simply print the form and mail it
in with your check, or pay online.

When does my order need to be placed so that I can receive a flag for the next holiday?
Orders must be received by us no later than five business days before the next patriotic holiday for installation on that date.
