Field of Flags
May 4 – May 27, 2013

Farmington Hills Church of God hosted the Field of Flags to pay tribute to the spirit of hope. We…

     • BELIEVE in human freedom
     • HONOR all who have served their country
     • SACRIFICE ourselves to love others

We did this without emphasis on politics or a specific religion.


The Field of Flags was a display of flags on the front lawn of Farmington Hills Church of God. There was a flag representing every military personnel who has died during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. A display board also listed their names.


The Field of Flags is a traveling exhibit which originated in Somers, Connecticut in 2005.

“The Field of Flags is a silent, patriotic and poignant reminder of the cost of war. Each flag represents not simply one casualty, but all the family members and friends who have been touched by that life now gone. They represent our respect for those who have served and are currently serving in the military and our hope for peace in the future, for a time when no one is called upon by our country to give the greatest sacrifice. Please continue to pray for the safety of all of our troops and for the families of the fallen heroes.”
