American Legion Post 223 in Sykesville has donated more than 100 American flags to Oklahoma Road Middle School.
"If not for the legion's generosity, we would have had to purchase the flags," said Larry Barnes, principal of the new school, which opened last week.
"The post went out of its way to supply us with both American and Maryland flags," Barnes said.
Every classroom has a flag and two are flying outside the building.
"We try to give back to our community every year," said John Ridgley, past commander of the post, which celebrated the 50th anniversary of its founding Saturday.
