Darien Monuments and Ceremonies Commission hosted the annual Flag Day Ceremony Saturday at the Veterans' Circle in front of Town Hall.

Led by Phil Kraft, commission chairman, veterans and residents recited the poem "I Am Your Flag."

First Selectman Jayme Stevenson participated as the old Town Hall flag was retired and folded and replaced with a new one.

State Sen. Bob Duff, D-Norwalk, presented the new flag to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6933 Color Guard. Troup 53 Boy Scout Ben Hathaway assisted the VFW Color Guard in performing their duties.
