Mystic Liberty Pole and Park

Mystic Flag Committee Invites Community to Celebration of Flag Day and Annual Meeting Sunday, June 14, 2020

The Mystic Flag Committee invites the residents of Mystic and the surrounding communities to attend the annual flag raising ceremony at the Mystic Liberty Pole located next to the Mystic River Bascule Bridge.

The flag raising ceremony will begin at 7:45AM on Flag Day, Sunday, June 14. The ceremony will include raising the American flag by Boy Scout Troop 76, the playing of "To the Colors" by Al McLoughlin, and the Pledge of Allegiance led by Mystic's VFW Post 3263.

Following the flag raising, the Mystic Flag Committee will have their annual meeting outside in the parking lot of the S&P Oyster Company. Coffee and donuts will be provided. We request that all attendees wear masks and practice social distancing.

About Mystic Liberty Pole and Park

Welcome to the website for the Mystic Flag Committee, which has oversight of Mystic’s historical Liberty Pole and Liberty Pole Square. We also oversee the placement of the American flag along the sidewalks of Mystic on major holidays, with the faithful assistance of Boy Scout Troop 76.

Our tall flag pole, located at the junction of Route 1 and Holmes Street in downtown Mystic, has proudly flown the Stars and Stripes over the Mystic River since 1862. Liberty Pole Square is a small park, located next to the S & P Oyster House, which features a historical anchor from a lumber schooner which sank off Cape Cod in 1897.

Or better still, read a great deal more in our booklet, Mystic’s Liberty Pole: 1862-2012. All proceeds from booklet sales go to the maintenance of the Liberty Pole, Liberty Pole Square, and sidewalk flags.

The Mystic Flag Committee is a non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible. Please consider making a small donation to keep the flag flying over Mystic!
