The Avenue of Flags is a walkway leading from the Concession Building to the Grandview Terrace. The Avenue of Flags was initially established as part of the celebration of America’s Bicentennial at the request of a visitor. Flags are powerful symbols, which remind people of the strength that is found within our nation’s diversity, history and ideals. The 56 flags represent the 50 states, one district, three territories, and two commonwealths of the United States of America. The flags are arranged in alphabetical order beginning with the A’s on the walkway near the Concession Building and ending with the W’s near the Visitor Center/Museum.
