Friends Now Accepting New and Renewed Subscriptions for U.S. Flags


The Friends of Fort Scott National Historic Site Inc. is now accepting applications for new subscriptions and renewals for their Fly the Flag project.  The project  provides homeowners and businesses, within the city limits of Fort Scott, the opportunity to display the Stars and Stripes on five different flag holidays during 2024 without the hassle of purchasing, placing, and storing a flag and pole.  You don’t even have to remember the holiday!

For $37 annually, the Friends will install a 3’x5′ flag on a 12 foot staff at your home or business on each of the following Flag Holidays :

Memorial Day, May 27th

Flag Day, June 14th

Fourth of July, July 4th

Labor Day, September 2nd

Veteran’s Day, November 11th


Applications for new subscriptions can be obtained at the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce or can be requested by phone, text, or email. Call 417-684-2484 or email [email protected].  Renewal notices are being mailed/e-mailed to 2023 subscribers. Both new agreements and renewals must be returned by March 31, 2024.


All proceeds support programs at Fort Scott National Historic Site including Symbols of Sacrifice, Candlelight Tour, and other special programs.


Show your patriotism and help our local National Park by lining the streets  of Fort Scott with our nation’s symbol!


The Fly the Flag project is a yearly project sponsored by the Friends of Fort Scott National Historic Site.  Once signed up, you will receive the option to renew annually.
