Old Glory flies along City’s roadways

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. –  Just in time for Independence Day, motorists in Clarksville will notice a patriotic display of Old Glory adorning City Hall and several of the City’s major thoroughfares.

Over the past two weeks, the Clarksville Street Department has placed 184 flags to honor America and its service members, veterans and their families.

“Clarksville has been rated the Most Patriotic City in Tennessee, and this is another great way to show it,” Mayor Joe Pitts said. “This helps to beautify our City and honor our high percentage of residents who are serving and have served in the Armed Forces.”

Flags are flying on light poles along the 101st Division Parkway, Riverside Drive, Madison Street, Interstate 24 exit ramps and in parking lots at City Hall and the Clarksville Marina.

The  roadside flags will fly for eight weeks each year -- six weeks from before Memorial Day to after the Fourth of July and a week before and after Veterans Day.


Roger Williams, a Clarksville Street Department technician, places a new American Flag at City Hall while Mayor Joe Pitts, Street Department staff Tommy Allbert, Tim Halbrooks and Brian Nelson, and Military Liaison Bill Harpel show pride in the effort to beautify the City with our country’s most patriotic symbol.
