Retired Flag Program
Retiring Worn Flags With Dignity
What happens to a flag when the trials of time have worn it down? Oliver’s Funeral Home feels the old flag deserves to be treated respectfully.
Once a year, on National Flag Day, February 15th, retired flags are laid to rest during a ceremony at Grande Prairie Cemetery. Flags can be dropped off at Oliver’s year-round.
This Year's Event
We will be delaying the ceremony due to the current Covid situation. We hope to celebrate our nation’s flag with you all next year on National Flag Day. Flags can continue to be dropped off at Oliver’s Funeral Home in preparation for next year’s ceremony.
