Placing gravesite flags may be one of the most solemn and sacred honors our Scouts may take on and for generations the Scouts and Scouters of the San Diego-Imperial Council have been volunteering to place flags at cemeteries across our southernmost corner of the country.

The Council Activities & Civic Service committee is working to develop a coordinated effort between local Scout units and all local cemeteries to provide this service on a consistent basis year after year. It is our hope that that this page will eventually list all interested cemeteries with a Scouter volunteer point of contact for site specific information regarding flag placements. If your unit serves a site on this list (or even one that is not listed here), please let us know and we’ll get you listed. Keep your eye on this page for updates.

**As of March 2021, all major cemeteries have declined in-person volunteers for large scale flag placement. This may change before May so please check back here for that update as well. If you have family members interred at a cemetery and wish to ensure a flag is placed for them, please reach out directly to the cemetery for their COVID-19 guidelines on graveside visitation.
