Flagstaff in Coconino County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Walkway of Flags
When the city celebrated its own centennial during the year 1994, the City Council and Centennial Commission decided to fly the flags of every state, and the flags of Flagstaff's sister cities as a way of showing how Flagstaff has progressed from an isolated outpost to a modern city connected with the world. Some of the money for the flags came from individual donors who wanted to honor their home states, and some came from city funds.
The flags were unveiled during a ceremony held on January 2, 1994, kicking off the Flagstaff Centennial events. They were immediately so popular with residents and visitors alike that in November 1994, the City Council and Centennial Commission decided to continue to fly the flags during good weather beyond the Centennial year.
