Beverly National Cemetery Flags:
The City of Beverly received several inquiries regarding no flags at gravesites in Beverly National Cemetery. Please know, the City of Beverly has no oversight of the National Cemetery. The policy of not allowing flags at the gravesites is a decision of the Department of Veterans Affairs. A link to the website is provided below:
Once on the website, please refer to the Floral/Grounds Policy which clearly states, “Flags are not permitted at the graves.”
The National Cemetery does place flags along the Avenue of Flags and has done so for several years.
It is not simply the initial cost of the flags but also the labor required to properly place the 45,000 to 50,000 flags and the labor to remove the flags again in less than a week so the grounds can be maintained.
If anyone has any additional concerns with this policy please call the Washington Crossing National Cemetery Administrative Offices at (215) 504-5610
