The United States Flag and the associated Veteran’s Flag holder are the only flags and holders permitted in Gethsemane Cemetery. Flag holders are provided by the Berks County Department of Veteran’s Affairs and should be provided, along with the initial flag, by your Funeral Director at the time of burial. Gethsemane Cemetery is provided new flags by the Berks County Department of Veteran’s Affairs each year and will place them on the graves prior to Memorial Day. Flags are normally removed with grave clean off during the week of November 15th and not permitted again until the following years placement. If the weather has caused the flags to show excessive wear, flags may be removed prior to the week of November 15th but never prior to July 15th.
