Flag Raisings

Apply for a Flag Raising

In addition to the flags customarily flown at JFK Plaza, the City of Lowell commemorates flags from many countries during the year.

To schedule a flag raising ceremony at City Hall, please fill out the Flag Raising Application Form.

Please be aware that applications will be reviewed on a first come first served basis.

We recommend that you submit the application to the Office of Cultural affairs and Special Events three to four weeks prior to the date of the flag raising.
