This is definitely not the first time we’ve shared this annual event, and it definitely will not be the last. McClain Insurance is once again, for the 11th year in a row, hosting a free American Flag exchange at their offices. Your worn flag will be respectfully disposed of by local Boy Scouts, and you’ll be supplied with a brand new, American made flag.
See below for the full press release.
FREE AMERICAN FLAG EXCHANGE
Exchange Your Worn Flag for a New One at McClain Insurance
Exchange your worn American flag for a new one at the McClain Insurance office June 11-14. All community members are invited to this free event, which is held annually in celebration of Flag Day. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the U.S. flag by the Continental Congress in 1777.
“Our goal is to help Snohomish County residents showcase their American spirit this Flag Day and beyond,” says Claudia McClain, founder of McClain Insurance. “Our deepest thanks go out to those who serve and have fought in defense of our freedom.”
Flags will be exchanged June 11-14 from 8:30am to 5pm at the McClain Insurance office at 10410 19th Ave SE, Everett, directly south of Costco.
McClain Insurance proudly gives away flags made in America. According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 90% of American flags are imported.
Retired flags will be respectfully disposed of in a ceremony held by local Boy Scouts.

This is the 11th consecutive year McClain Insurance has hosted this free community event.
