What is a Garrison Flag?
The Garrison Flag for Detective Ferency will be in place at Wabash and Brown in Terre Haute.
The larger American flag, 40 feet by 60 feet, is generally suspended by two fire trucks.
Once the flag is in place, no vehicles are permitted to drive under it, except the procession.
During the War of 1812, with the British, Major George Armistead, Fort McHenry's commanding office flew a flag so large, the British would not have a hard time seeing it from a distance.
