Lake Highlands American Flag Project

Show your colors and support Lake Highlands Scouting

We'd like to offer the residents of Lake Highlands (Dallas), Texas a great opportunity to demonstrate your pride in our great country while supporting scouting in Lake Highlands!

What: The Lake Highlands American Flag Project. A neighborhood community service project focusing on community pride and a love for the United States of America.

Why: To show our Patriotic spirit and help Lake Highlands Boy Scout Troops/Venturing Crews 707 and 719 raise funds for campouts, summer and winter camps and equipment.

When: Six deployments per year: President’s Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July, September 11 and Veteran’s Day.  Flags are posted at dawn and removed at dusk on these days.

Where: The Lake Highlands American Flag Project 

will place a 3x5 foot American Flag on a 10-foot pole in front of each house located in the grass outside the sidewalk uniformly positioned throughout the entire block.


Over the 10 + years that the Lake Highlands American Flag Program has been deploying flags to subscribers in Lake Highlands, we have never missed deploying on any of the flag days and we work hard to make sure our subscribers get their flags even if the weather is not cooperating.

Nevertheless, the safety of our Scouts and their families is paramount and if weather is such that hazardous conditions are present (such as lightning, high winds, flooding, or icing), we may need to delay deployment of flags, delay retrieval of flags, or, in certain situations, cancel a deployment.
