Flags Over Waynesville is a patriotic subscription service performed by BSA Troop 51 and supported by the American Legion Post 615. On 5 major flag-flying holidays during the year you subscribe, Boy Scouts from BSA Troop 51 will place a flag in your yard at dawn, in a pre-installed sleeve, and then retrieve the flag at dusk.
By participating in Flags Over Waynesville, you will help instill values in the local community by supporting the growth of the Scouts in BSA Troop 51.
Upon subscribing, Troop 51 will place a plastic sleeve in your yard, cap it, and mark the curb/street with a BSA fleur de lis logo. The sleeve and cap will be flush with the ground requiring no maintenance on your part and will not interfere with mowing.
An American flag will be posted at dawn and retired before dusk on five national flag flying days:
- Memorial Day
- Flag Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Veteran’s Day
There is an annual service fee of $35 that covers all five holidays. The service will begin on the first holiday after you sign up.
Flags Over Waynesville is limited to 200 annual subscriptions and is only available in the Villages of Waynesville and Corwin. Please read the Terms and Conditions for additional details.
**It is your responsibility to ensure this is permitted in your neighborhood, i.e. Home Owner Association, and to identify any utility supply lines, sprinkler systems, or pet containment systems which must be avoided during installation.**
Installation location should be 12-18” from the curb/street near the center of your lawn.
We will install a flagpole sleeve made from a one foot section of PVC pipe in your yard about 18 inches from the curb/street. This pipe will be installed low enough not to interfere with regular lawn mowing.
In the event of severe weather on one of the 5 holidays, the flags will be posted/retired on Patriot Day, September 11th.
