The American Flag is proudly displayed on the flagpole in Danvers Square. The pole stands 80 feet tall and displays a 15’ x 25’ American Flag. After sunset, the flag is illuminated by lighting on the top of the Fossa Block. While the flag is suitable for all-weather conditions, the flag is taken down when high winds are expected.
The flag is lowered to half-staff on certain scheduled days, upon a state or federal order, to honor local military veterans, honored community members, or a local hero.
