Medal of Honor Row Installed in Phoenix https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-2/1720City Council District 21/26/2021 5:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1720/moh4 (1).jpgMedal of Honor Row Installed in Phoenix <div class="ExternalClass97944568D3B1418EBB126DADFC055356"><html>​Earlier this month, the Arizona Medal of Honor Row was installed in the City of Phoenix's District 2, near Pinnacle Peak and Cave Creek Roads, which is adjacent to the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona. The sign installation honors individuals with ties to Arizona who have received the Medal of Honor. These individuals have served the country and Arizona with heroic valor and honor. <br><br>The Medal of Honor is the United States government's highest and most-prestigious military decoration that may be awarded to recognize those who risk their lives above and beyond the call of duty.<br><br>The installation honors 37 recipients, including: William Alchesay, a White Mountain Apache leader, who was awarded for gallant conduct during the Indian Wars, Isaiah Mays, a Buffalo Solider who was awarded for his actions during a robbery in the Arizona Territory, Manuel Mendoza, the “Arizona Kid" for his heroism in World War II and Joseph Foss, a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve awarded for his heroism serving in the Marine Fighting Squadron 121, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing. <br><br>“The Medal of Honor recognizes our country's most valiant men and women, with 37 of these honorees having ties to our state," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This signage installation helps to bring awareness to these local heroes so that their sacrifices may never be forgotten." <br><br> “We must honor our veterans from the present and past who have fearlessly protected our state and country," said District 2 Councilman Jim Waring. “It's been an honor to assist in making the Arizona Medal of Honor Row a reality."<br> <br>The idea for the Arizona Medal of Honor Row was brought to Councilman Waring by Phoenix resident Archie Dicksion. “Arizona throughout its history has had individuals that have stood head and shoulders above others in protecting those around them," said Dicksion. “So that others may know their deeds, we dedicate this row to them."<br><br>The Arizona Medal of Honor row was made possible by the Phoenix Street Transportation Department. Crews from the department's sign shop designed, fabricated and installed all of the signage along Medal of Honor Row. The project was funded by the District 2 Office. <br><br><p>A list of the Arizona Medal of Honor Recipients can be found here: <a href="https://avhof.org/inductees/medal-of-honor-recipients/" target="_blank">https://avhof.org/inductees/medal-of-honor-recipients/</a><br></p></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district2Newsdistrict-2Medal of Honor District 2JimWaringStephanie Bracken602-769-0717602-495-5405​​stephanie.bracken@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/42/Stephanie_Bracken.jpgphxdistrict2

100 Year Old City Flag will be on display at Phoenix City Hallhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phxtv/2149PHXTV11/23/2021 9:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/SGGFvXW5IRA100 Year Old City Flag will be on display at Phoenix City Hall<div class="ExternalClass3BDFE9D342F646ABBF78D7E3ADD269B1"><html> <p>​In 1921 Phoenix was a small city of 48,000 and residents were optimistic about the future. Phoenicians felt they needed a symbol of their prosperity and so the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce conducted a contest to design what would become the official flag of the city of Phoenix. The winning design is a 52 inch by 66 inch rectangle of heavy grade soft blue silk taffeta with an orange fringe. Embroidered in the center is a phoenix bird over a gold flame sunburst background. A white ribbon scroll at the bottom is embroidered with the legend, "City of Phoenix, Arizona". Back in 1921 the flag cost $175.<br></p><p>At the unveiling of the flag in the Phoenix City Hall Atrium, Mayor Kate Gallego said,<br>"Just like the Phoenix Rising, our flag is on display again, reminding us of the history of our great city. It's a time to celebrate the accomplishments of the City of Phoenix. Our history helps us build and move towards our future."</p><p>The City of Phoenix Official Flag is considered a public record and Phoenix City Clerk Denise Archibald is in charge of taking care of it.</p><p>Archibald said, "The City of Phoenix Flag was adopted by ordinance on November 23rd., 1921 and it has been under the care of the city clerk.  We ensure that the flag is kept in a safe and secure environment that's conducive to its preservation and conservation. Now we are here celebrating the 100-year anniversary of this flag. It will be on display at City Hall in the atrium between November 23rd. and the end of December. Then it will come back to the city clerk for safekeeping. I believe next year we will go ahead and try to maintain the flag, as we usually do, and have some conservation efforts completed on it just to make sure that it's always preserved and in a good state."</p><p>Much like the mythical Phoenix Bird, the first official city of Phoenix flag has risen again from the dust of time.</p><p>"I think the flag is beautiful" said City Clerk Denise Archibald. "The history is rich and we're just proud to be able to keep it safe and in good condition and will continue to do so for many years to come. I'm just excited that we have this opportunity to celebrate its 100-year anniversary."<br></p><p><span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/phxtvVideo
