The largest free-flying Flag in the United States towers over the Johnstown Inclined Plane. Its area is 60 ft by 30 ft. The idea of the Flag at the top of the Incline came from Sandy McQuaide, who organized the Centennial Flag committee to raise funds for the first flag and replacement flags. In 2003, an Endowment Fund was established for the Flag at the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies.
The Flag costs approximately $2,000 to replace, and we always try to have one spare flag in place.
Those willing to donate checks can do so by making a check out to the “Johnstown Inclined Plane Flag Fund." While at the Incline, you can make a donation in the Gift Shop. Also, check our website soon for an online donation option.
On behalf of the Incline Flag Committee, we thank you for helping to keep “Old Glory” flying high above the Johnstown region.
