Honor A Veteran

CLIFTON, NJ – Five times a year volunteers erect over 1550 flags throughout the grounds of  the Clifton Municipal Complex. It is a sight to take your breath away as they billow in the breeze.

Citizens can honor a veteran by purchasing flag for his or her birthday, a special occasion – like Father’s Day, or a wonderful tribute for their service. Cost of $100.00 is for the flag, pole, sleeve, name plate and ground socket.

To honor someone, a form must be completed and returned to City Hall. Visit click on LINKS and then click on Avenue of Flags. All the needed information is on the site and the form can be downloaded as well.

Flags are displayed on Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Patriot Day, (911) and Veterans Day. Please visit the site above for the set up and take down times.

We always can use extra hands to put up and take down the over 1550 flags. If interested in volunteering, please call John Biegel Jr. at 973 519-0858. Come join us and we guarantee you will get an overwhelmingly good feeling for being a part of honoring those who served their country.
