By Sarah A. Haddock and Mark A. P. JohnsonSource Washington Times article The National Park Service announced Friday it is planning to install a new display of American flags at its national park in California.
The National Memorial, an 8.5-foot-high wall of colorful American flags that will be installed next spring at Yosemite National Park, will be displayed during the annual American flag day, the agency said in a statement.
“The National Park service is excited to be collaborating with our partners at the California state parks and forests to create a new National Memorial at Yosemite,” said Jay W. White, acting director of the parks.
The National Memorial will feature a large, red, white and blue flagpole with an American flag attached, with the American flag hanging from a chain.
The flagpole also will include a large American flag.
The flagpole will be placed on the wall during the national flag parade on June 30, the National Park System said in its statement.
The agency also is creating a new public plaza and a pavilion at Yosemite for the annual flag-raising event, which is now in its fifth year.
