Celebrate Flag Day
Celebrate the birthday of Philadelphia's Civic Flag every March 27!
 
McCook The Reverend Doctor Henry C. McCook (1837-1911)

Back in 1894, Rev. Dr. Henry C. McCook wrote a letter to then mayor, Edwin S. Stuart, suggesting that Philadelphia adopt a civic flag as a means of promoting civic pride. "The display and constant use of a Philadelphia Civic Flag would act towards the strengthening of civic pride, precisely as similar use of the National Flag tends to foster a spirit of national loyalty."

McCook's efforts proved fruitful. On March 27, 1895, an official civic flag was ordained by city council, designed using drawings McCook included in his letter.

Our PFCP Programs include the production of "Philadelphia Flag Day!" every March 27th on the anniversary of our Philly Flag. This is an invitation to all Philadelphians to gather in unity to honor our FLAG and it's message, while also celebrating those individuals and groups who practice the FLAG's message in an effort to make Philly a better place for all! We are currently planning the 2014 celebration AND the big 120th Anniversary celebration for 2015!

PFCP presents the PHILADELPHIA MANETO AWARD(S) annually at the Philadelphia Flag Day event! Each year the Award Recipients are asked to return for the March 27th event, to honor the new Recipients. The gathering of former Recipients creates an ever-growing community of civically engaged Philadelphians who unite annually to strengthen our civic bond! We are working to establish an ENDOWMENT for this award to ensure its presentation for future generations!
