Flag garden on Boston Common for Memorial Day

I worked in Boston on Wednesday and stopped by the Boston Common on the way to the MBTA at South Station to catch this view of the annual flag garden put up that day. 

It will remain through Memorial Day to honor the 37,000+ Massachusetts residents who gave it all for our country.

"Our signature community building event!  We and hundreds of volunteers create a majestic garden of flags on Boston Common for Memorial Day weekend.  Each of the 37,000+ flags we plant at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument will represent every brave Massachusetts service member who gave his or her life defending our country since the Revolutionary War. The completed garden is a breathtaking tribute to the true meaning of Memorial Day and a powerful message of community support to the families of these fallen heroes that their sacrifices will never be forgotten. 
We rely on donors and volunteers to create this display and to stand watch over them throughout Memorial Day weekend.  More information about these opportunities can be found here: Volunteer flyer 2018."
And by way of disclosure, I do work for John Hancock, one of the sponsors of this event.
