FLY THE FLAG Subscriptions


A flag-lined street evokes a sense of patriotic pride and unity in the community. BSA Troop 199 is bringing that unity to our community with our FLY THE FLAG service.


What is a flag service?


Ready to sign up?

FLY THE FLAG is part community service and part fundraiser. For your annual subscription, our scouts install and light a beautiful US flag in your front yard, creating a dramatic patriotic display on your street.

Flags along a street

The flags fly on these important flag holidays:

  • Memorial Day
  • Flag Day
  • 4th of July
  • Patriot's Day (Sept 11)
  • Veteran's Day

Our promise

We promise that your flag will fly for at least the full 24 hours of the holiday.* And, we always light our flags in the evenings, according to proper flag etiquette.

Our flags are a generous 3'x5' and made in the USA.

*Safety is our primary concern, so adjustments will be made in cases of hazardous conditions.

Why subscribe?

Your subscription teaches our scouts valuable lessons about community and patriotism, supports our troop activities, and teaches positive lessons, like goal setting and the value of earning your own way.

Who gets my money?

100% of your subscription goes to our scouts and Troop 199!


Cost: $50
