Somerville Flag Raising on New Year’s Day

Prospect Hill Tower Somerville MA

Looking for something different to ring in the new year?   Head on over to Prospect Hill in Somerville for the annual New Year’s Day flag raising.

The Prospect Hill flag raising on January 1, 2012 marks the 236th anniversary of General George Washington’s raising of the nation’s first official flag on Jan. 1, 1776 on Prospect Hill.  A processional led by a Washington re-enactor on horseback will leave Somerville City Hall at 11:30 am.  The flag will be raised at Prospect Hill Park at noon.

There will be songs, readings, and re-enactments by several groups. Light refreshments will be served.  Books about Somerville’s history and miniature replicas of the Grand Union Flag will be available for purchase.

The circa 1905 postcard at right reads in part: “Strongest work in besieging line of Boston 1775-1776.  On this Eminence Jan. 1, 1776, The Flag of the United Colonies first waved defiance to a foe.”
