While not an official Federal holiday, Binnie Media/NH1 in Concord chose to honor the spirit of the day by replacing their state and national flags that greet employees, clients and guests at the entrance to their New Hampshire broadcast center.
“Good Morning New Hampshire” hosts, Peter St. James and Pat Kelly of 107.7 The Pulse, recently reached out to U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan and New Hampshire State Senator (District 15) Dan Feltes to assist in the flag upgrade. Through their timely efforts, the new flags on display will have flown over the U.S. Capitol and the NH State House respectively.
Binnie Media President, Massimo Rosati said, “To many people, the replacement of these flags may be a small thing. But we think that pride and appearance speak loudly. And to us, those are not small things”.
In accordance with The United States Flag Code which states, “The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning”, the old flags will be presented to a local Boy Scout troop or Veteran’s organization to be included in a flag retirement ceremony.
Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 and was officially established in 1916 by proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson.
