OGDEN, Utah – As a way to honor healthcare providers and first responders, a massive American flag now covers part of the north tower at Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden.

The group "Follow the Flag" unveiled a 30’x60’ flag called "The Lieutenant" on Saturday morning with hospital workers, law enforcement and fire personnel watching from the ground below.

“South Ogden Fire, Police and EMTs were there to support with their vehicles and trucks as well. We thank them for their support. A special thank you to the staff at McKay-Dee and Intermountain Healthcare for allowing this honor flight to happen,” Follow the Flag wrote on their website.

The flag will fly for three days and will be illuminated by a spotlight from dawn until dusk. Over 300 roadside flags will remain in place during the day and retrieved at night.
