The Story Of Flag Rock In Plymouth

At the north end of White Horse beach is a rock sticking out of the water with an American flag painted on it.

According to local legend, this act of patriotism was performed to cover a Nazi swastika painted on the rock. In the summer of 1941 local teenagers painted the first flag and went on to join the armed forces after Pearl Harbor was bombed in December 1941. The harsh winter storms washed the flag thin so the swastika showed through.

The next Fourth of July the tradition of re-painting the flag was born. Ed Fitzgerald, a White Horse resident, was part of that group. When Ed was of age he also joined the military service and left the tradition to his cousins, the Bradley boys of Priscilla Beach. For years they maintained the flag each Fourth of July until 1985 when family home was sold.

Flag Rock still lies off the shore of White Horse Beach in Plymouth, Massachusetts. It still proudly lets you know what countries coast you’re about to land on!
