Meanings of a folded U.S. flag

The first fold of the American flag is a symbol of life.
The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life.
The third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks, and who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world.
The fourth fold is a symbol of our weaker nature, as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace, as well as in times of war, for His divine guidance.
The fifth fold is a tribute to our country, the United States of America. For in the words for Stephen Decatur, "Our country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right, but it is still our country, right or wrong."
The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
The seventh fold is a tribute to our armed forces, for it is through the armed forces that we protect our country and our flag against all enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.
The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day, and to honor our mother, for whom it flies on Mother's Day.
The ninth fold is a tribute to womanhood, for it has been through their faith, love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great have been molded.
The 10th fold is a tribute to father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since he or she was first born.
The 11th fold, in the eyes of Hebrew citizens, represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies, in their eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
The 12th fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in their eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost.

When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, reminding us of our national motto, "In God We Trust."

After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it has the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington and the sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones and were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the U.S. Armed Forces, preserving for us the rights, privileges and freedoms we enjoy today.


When are flags flown on the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor National Memorial?

Flags are flown ceremonially three times a year: December 7 (anniversary of attack on Pearl Harbor), Memorial Day and Independence Day. You can also have your flag flown on a specific date as long as you place your order 7 days in advance. The only days we don't fly flags are Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day as Pearl Harbor National Memorial is closed.

Can I personalize my Pearl Harbor Certificate of Flag Presentation?

Yes. When placing your order, please input the name or names you'd like on your certificate. We recommend one line with 45 letters max. We also recommend writing "John Smith" instead of "JOHN SMITH".

Polymax or Nylon?

The polymax flag is a thicker, heavier material that is similar to cotton. Most people cannot tell the difference. The nylon flag is thin and soft to the touch and does much better for flags being flown outside. Nylon flags are also generally easier to fold.

My dad served in the United States Navy during WWII and I love Hawaii so it is only fitting that I share these two loves by getting this flag that was flown over Pearl Harbor for the 80th anniversary commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I am a huge Elvis fan and know that he held a concert which raised $68,000 in early 1960s to get the ball rolling for this memorial to be built. He too was a great patriot.

For the future

Purchased a flag from the 80th anniversary in honor of my uncle, who was killed aboard the USS Arizona. It will be passed down to my grandchildren and many other generations, I hope, so they never forget him and his sacrifice.

Honors Rendered

I had the opportunity to be in Hawaii Nov. 30 to Dec. 9th 2021, participating in the 80th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. During this time I escorted 41 Young Marines from the Pfc Bruce W Carter MEDAL OF HONOR Miami FL unit. I proudly ordered and received 15 Flags flown on December 7. 2021. These were presented to those Veteran's who have served and fought for our Country. Thank you for fulfilling my request in a timely manner, and the Certificates made these a personal gift which is honored by all..Semper Fidelis Gunny Lou Slagle USMC Ret

80th Anniversary Commemoration

We were able to commemorate my father in law being on board the USS Nevada on that Sunday morning 80 years ago by being at Pearl Harbor. My wife and 2 of her siblings, as well as my daughter and her family, were able to be there this year. Having flags that were flown on the 7th at the USS Arizona Memorial are a tribute to the acts of bravery and sacrifice that occurred that morning throughout Oahu. The 2 flags I ordered were flown on the 7th and arrived with certificates very quickly. Thank you Pacific Historic Parks!!!

Gift for my grandson

This flag was a gift for my grandson so he'll have a constant reminder of December 7, 1941. While his father was in the Navy and stationed at Pearl Harbor waiting to be assigned duty on an attack sub he did volunteer work at the Arizona Memorial. So they will have a reminder of the 80th anniversary and If I live long enough I'll order him a 100th Anniversary flag.

I am honored

We joyfully got our first flag that was flown over PH many years ago. We have flown it proudly ever since and value it's true meaning.
When I found out that we could get one that was flown on the 80th Anniversary, I was thrilled.
It has so much meaning to us, I am hesitant to even unwrap it, let alone fly it.
I am a proud American and value the men that have served for our Freedom. I am most grateful for those that gave all.
Thank you for your prompt, professional and considerate customer service.
God Bless America!

Dec 7th 80th Anniversary

Finally got my flag, and I will make a shadow box for it and treasure this item forever and it will remind me of the sacrifice of a lot of people who gave their lives for the world we live in today

80th Anniversary Flag

I had ordered a flag to be flown on 12/15. 12/15/42, my dad enlisted in the USN. Dedication certificate listed him and 4 uncles who served in WWII. I was notified just before the date that damage was found on the shore side dock and no boats were allowed to visit the memorial. Pacific Historic Parks gave me options on my order, which included sending me a flag that had been flown over the ARIZONA on 12/7/21 @ 0755… marking the 80th Anniversary of the attack. I received the flag and certificate quickly. Extremely pleased with their service and commitment! They were very accommodating and I already have the flag and certificate on display at home.

Proud Patriot

The flag is actually a birthday gift for our son in law next October. We purchased early so we wouldn't miss the anniversary flag. His dream is someday to visit Hawaii to be at the USS Arizona memorial. No one is a bigger patriot than him. I'm anxious to see him fly this flag proudly. Thank you and God Bless.

Rudy Spurlin

I bought a flag for myself and son, and I can say we both love them. I had a chance to buy one when I visited the Arizona back 7 Dec 2001 and did not and have since then wanted to get one in the future. It all worked out as we both got a flag dedicated to our grandfathers who fought in the war, and on the 80th anniversary to boot. Thanks.
