DANBURY, Conn. — A new flag is flying high over downtown Danbury thanks to a new 100-foot flagpole that was unveiled Wednesday, June 14, by Mayor Mark Boughton as part of a Flag Day celebration.

The new flag, which is 30 feet by 60 feet, made a spectacular sight as it was unfurled against a clear blue sky and bright sunshine.

There are actually TWO new flags. Each cost about $2,350, and they can be rotated after showing signs of wear.

The small park in the side of the intersection of Main Street and West Street, across from the Danbury Library, was refurbished along with the monuments as part of the installation of the new flagpole.

The Savings Bank of Danbury donated the flagpole, with additional donations from Rizzo Companies, F&M Electric and the Danbury Garden Club.

The original flag pole was donated by Union Veterans in the Grand Army of the Republic back in 1937.
