Flag Day Folding Ceremony

Celebrate Flag Day at the Heinz History Center!

Participate in a moving Flag Day ceremony featuring the unfurling and folding of a giant 36-foot American flag in the Great Hall. Reflect upon the civic democracy and history that the flag represents while commemorating the adoption of the American flag on this same day in 1777. Just as a flag this large requires many people to fold, consider the many citizens and voices that make up and support our Republic.

This program is part of Civic Season, presented in partnership with Smithsonian and the History Made By Us national coalition, and the History Center initiative, America 101.

America 101 engages the public to learn American history through public programs, special exhibitions, digital learning tools, and educational curriculum.

America 101 is supported by Nimick Forbesway Foundation.


The flag folding ceremony is free for all visitors, but regular admission applies to access exhibitions.
