The City of Worcester is a diverse community with residents of different cultural backgrounds from around the world. As such, we recognize that the raising and displaying of cultural flags enhances public awareness of this fact and expresses respect to all members of our community.
The City of Worcester wishes to ensure that the displaying of cultural flags is exercised in a consistent and appropriate manner. Therefore, consideration for approval will be on a first come first served basis. The City of Worcester Human Rights Policy will guide decision making for granting the display of cultural flags.
Flags are typically displayed for a one‐day period. Flags must be dropped off in City Hall Room 101 no later than two (2) days prior to date requested to be raised and picked up within two (2) days after being displayed.
This policy applies to flags displayed at City Hall.
The flag measurements are minimum of 4' x 6' and maximum of 5' x 8', standard outdoor flag (ie: waterproof and heavy duty) and should have 3 metal grommets.
Please select the date for the flag to be flown. Requests to display cultural flags must be made at least two (2) weeks in advance of the date it is to be raised and not greater than one year. Today is April 2, 2023.
