JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Jacksonville Elks Lodge #221 on Sunday held a Flag Day ceremony.

The ceremony began at 2 p.m.

According to organizers, the ceremony included the history of the American flag and concluded with a flag retirement.

Flag Day is June 14.

On Monday, News4Jax will be hosting a flag giveaway at Channel 4, located at 4 Broadcast Place in Jacksonville’s San Marco neighborhood.
