Touching Flag Ceremony in Cape May NJ

Flag Ceremony Cape May Evening Flag Ceremony is a 40 Year Tradition

The Evening Flag Ceremony is a 40 year Tradition at Sunset Beach

When visiting Cape May and Sunset Beach, be sure to leave at least one night open to join us for our evening flag ceremony held daily in season (May through September). We are immensely proud of this tradition which has been a staple of our area for over 40 years. All of the flags that we fly at our mast are veterans’ casket flags that families bring with them from their loved one’s funeral. We are honored to fly them here at Sunset Beach. There is nothing as thought provoking than to watch the sun set over the Delaware Bay while taps plays and Old Glory is lowered for the evening. If you have not experienced this emotionally moving tradition, we invite you to be a participant in this celebration of being an American.
