Avenue of Flags

HISTORY

National Park Service U.S. Department of the Interior Mount Rushmore National Memorial Keystone, South Dakota

Flags are powerful symbols, which remind people of their common heritage, history and ideals. The Avenue of Flags was initially established as part of the celebration of America's Bicentennial at the request of a visitor. The 56 flags represent the 50 states, one district, three territories, and two commonwealths of the United States of America.

PLACEMENT

The flags are arranged in alphabetical order with the A's on the walkway near the concession building and the W's near the Visitor Center/Museum. If you have trouble locating your flag, ask a park ranger for assistance.
