Red Line Flag

The "Thin Red Line" flag was developed to show solidarity and support to fire service personnel, in particular to honor injured and fallen firefighters. As firefighters are periled, they place their lives second to those they protect. They are forced to face their own feats and grasp for every ounce of courage to perform the necessary task. "The Thin Red Line of Courage" represents the last ounce of courage firefighters find deep in their blood to conquer their fears in order to save and protect life and property.
