Flag Replacement Program

Flag Replacement Program

As you are displaying a U.S. flag at your home or business in Johnstown, you may possibly wish to take advantage of the “Flag Replacement Program” jointly offered by the Village of Johnstown and American Legion Post 254. At your request, American Legion Post 254 will provide a new flag to you for their cost (see current prices below). A post member will remove your old flag, replace it with the new flag at no additional charge, and Post 254 will properly dispose of the old one.

Do NOT contact the American Legion directly; the village will coordinate with the Legion and arrange for a Legion member to call you and schedule a convenient time to get your new flag to you. Payment to Post 254 for your flag will be due when the flag is delivered. To place your order for a new flag contact:

Village of Johnstown
599 S. Main Street

Telephone: 740-967-3177
