Virginia Flaggers at the Hanover Tomato Festival, July 14, 2012


On July 14, the Virginia Flaggers participated in the Hanover Tomato Festival, a long standing tradition in Hanover County and one of the biggest events of the year. We set up a booth and handed out Virginia Flagger literature and information, and gave away over 850 Confederate Battle Flag to festival participants. It was a beautiful sight to see the battle flags carried all over the festival grounds! We had the opportunity to talk to hundreds of people, and our information (and especially the free flags) were very well received! Most of you know that defending attacks on our Heritage and our flags is the main purpose of the Flaggers, but it is important to realize that education and forwarding the colors to the public is another part of what we do, and is something that is desperately needed at county festivals and fairs all across the South!
