Boston City Hall Plaza flag-raising dates

We commemorate flags from many countries and communities at Boston City Hall Plaza during the year.

We want to create an environment in the City where everyone feels included, and is treated with respect. We also want to raise awareness in Greater Boston and beyond about the many countries and cultures around the world. Our goal is to foster diversity and build and strengthen connections among Boston's many communities. 

Want to spread the word about a flag-raising?

If you want help spreading the word, or are interested in partnering with an Employee Resource Group from the City, please contact the Diversity Office.
