Year Round Flags and Banners
Inspired by the auspicious acts of 9/11, the city initiated a patriot flag program displaying more than 100 American Flags throughout the downtown and Weiss Street area. What started out as a temporary tribute has stayed as a continuing patriotic salute some 10 years later. The flags welcome our German and Canadian visitors as well as honor our military men and women in the US Armed forces.
With a grant from the Frankenmuth Community Foundation, Frankenmuth blue banners pinpoint street lights throughout the community. Regaled in the city's logo, created in the early 1960s by committee members, the banners are a colorful addition to our city streets and gateways.
