Flags 4 Freedom

Merriam Marketplace   |   5740 Merriam Drive   |   Merriam, KS 66203

Each year, Downtown Merriam and the surrounding area transforms into perfect rows of patriotic pride as Flags 4 Freedom organizers place more than 1,500 United States flags at the Merriam Marketplace, Irene B. French Community Center and along Merriam and Johnson Drive. Everyone is invited to stop by during the week around the Fourth of July to view an astonishing display that honors our nation.

Yellow ribbons are available for dedication for a suggested donation of $15.00 each. For more information regarding flag dedications click here.
