Flag in Pleasant Grove | Largest Flag Ever Flown

Right now, in Pleasant Grove, you can go see the Largest Flag Ever Flown. It is 1/4 of an acre, and weighs 400 pounds. You can see it from the 1-15 if you look over toward the G on the mountainside. This flag is huge!

 

We noticed the large flag when we were in Pleasant Grove watching the city fireworks. It was lit up and was quite the sight on the Fourth of July. We decided to take a closer look since the flag is on display all week.

A nonprofit organization called Follow The Flag hung a large flag over Grove Creek Canyon for the last few years in order to encourage patriotism, and to remind everyone that the 4th of July isn’t just about fireworks. This year they went above and beyond by creating the largest flag ever flown. They also hold events, and a lighting ceremony each night. You can see the events on their website.

 

We love seeing this beautiful flag displayed right next to our beautiful Utah mountains. It is amazing to see! Finding the flag is very easy, too! We included directions below. The flag in Pleasant Grove will be on display from July 4-July 10.

As you drive up the hill, you will catch glimpses of the flag blowing in the breeze!

At the parking lot you can get some great pictures of the flag.

The trail walks right underneath the flag.

The boys thought it was too bright for a picture with the flag!

Drive to the end of 500 N (Grove Creek Blvd) in Pleasant Grove and you’ll come to the Grove Creek Trail head. There is a small parking area where you can circle through and look at the flag, or you can park and walk along the trail right underneath the flag. The trail is simple and only about 1/4 mile.

The flag in Pleasant Grove looks beautiful over Grove Creek Canyon.

    • I’m not sure the decision for only flying it for one week. I’m sure that the city, and nonprofit organization had to work those things out. You can contact them about your suggestion to fly it on through July 24.
