About our markers
Each year the streets of the City of Duluth are lined with more than 800 markers and flags, representing those who served in the armed forces. The flags and markers are on display the week before and after Memorial Day, and also the week before and after Veterans Day.
All markers from Governors Landing east bound on SR120 have been moved to 3159 Buford Hwy. All markers on Pleasant Hill westbound from W.P. Jones Park to McClure Bridge Road will be moved to George Rogers Avenue. This change is due to safety issues for our crew.
For additional information on this memorial, please contact the Department of Public Works at 770.476.2454. The current listing of the veterans names, including the location of each marker and service is here .
