Findlay, OH - Flag City, USA

It was in 1974 that Findlay, OH was named Flag City, USA. John B. Cooke, a member of the Sons of the American Revolution, sought out to purchase 14,000 small flags and have them proudly displayed by local businesses and residents on Flag Day - June 14, 1968. A fund was created, and 14,000 flags were purchased and distributed by the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the local Camp Fire Girls. The flags were flown proudly all the way through 1974 when the Women’s Division of the Chamber of Commerce started a campaign for Findlay to officially become Flag City, USA. On May 7, 1974, the House of Representatives declared Findlay, OH as Flag City, USA. 

And we've been flying them proudly ever since
