Danbury is set to dedicate it's new flag pole today. On this Flag Day, the ceremony will include a performance by the Danbury High School marching band, a tribute from the Veteran's Council and Police Honor Guard along with reenactors from the greater Danbury community.
The 100-foot flag pole is at the corner of West and Main Streets. The ceremony is set for 4 pm.
The original flag pole was donated by Union Veterans in the Grand Army of the Republic in 1937. The Civil War monument on that green was recently refurbished.
The City paid $75,000 for the new flagpole and restoration work.
