Revolution Flag Group donates 15 brand new American flags to DPD

DETROIT - Revolution Flag Group employees are dedicating a brand new donated American flag for the Detroit Police Department Central District Precinct on Flag Day.

Organizers of the event said the ceremony will also dedicate the donation of 15 brand new American Flags by RFG to the Detroit Police Department to replace tattered and worn flags at other police precincts around the city.

RFG started in 2008 by mother and son team, Connie and Michael Soviak of Grosse Pointe Woods. The local business installs and services American flags for commercial and residential customers throughout southeast Michigan.

The Soviaks said they established Revolution Flag Group to honor Old Glory while at the same time, providing an important and often overlooked service.

DPD's flag day event will take place Friday, June 14 at 10 a.m. at DPD's Central District Precinct, located at 7310 Woodward Avenue in Detroit.

Police officers, local elected officials and students will be in attendance.
