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
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2023 event! We laid over 400 flags to rest with some flags coming from as far away as Prince George, BC!
Information about the 2024 Flag Retirement Ceremony will be available in January 2024. Flags can be dropped off at Oliver’s year-round.
