Donate Your Community's Flag for the Opening Ceremony Parade of Flags

Include your community's flag alongside 150 others during the Parade of Flags at the 60th Annual Conference Opening Ceremony on Friday, August 3rd.

Each member community or organization is encouraged to donate a community/city/county or sister city organization flag for the Parade. Note: If you donated a flag for the 2014, 2015, 2016, or 2017 Conferences, it will be used again this year. New flag donations are considered to be a one time member gift to Sister Cities International and will be retained for use during future Annual Conference Opening Ceremonies. 

Please ship flags to:

     Sister Cities International

     915 15th Street NW, 4th Floor

     Washington, DC 20005

Flags should be 3 ft. x 5 ft. (92 cm x 152 cm) with sheath diameter greater than 2 1/4 inches (57 mm) and no larger than 3 inches (76 mm). Sister Cities International will provide standard size flag poles.

Please notify conference@sistercities.org when your flag is en route. 

International conference attendees are invited to provide a city flag as well, however it is emphasized that this is a parade of community/city flags and NOT a parade of country flags/national colors. Country flags/national colors will NOT be accepted as a substitute for a community or city flag.

All flags must be received by Friday, July 13, 2018. If we have not received your flag by this date, we cannot guarantee the flag will be in this year’s parade.
