Welcome to Mausoleumflags.com Order your free flags and flag holders here.
Our mission is to supply American Flags and holders to families of Veterans resting in community mausoleums free of charge. Please read our story.
The charity is dedicated to Robert Ruggieri. Bob was a proud Army Airborne Veteran. For 30 years he helped the scouts place thousands of flags on the graves of veterans at the local cemetery. In 2014 Bob passed away and was laid to rest in that same cemetery. Alex Pierce was one of the scouts that joined Bob each year to place American Flags. When Alex heard Bob did not have a flag on his mausoleum, he set out to invent a plastic flag holder for mausoleums. In a ceremony directed by Retired U.S.Navy Chaplain Peter Gregory, Bob received his flag and a full Military Honor Guard that he did not have on the snowy November day in 2014 when he was first laid to rest.
Thousands of the Ruggieri Flag Holders have been produced and distributed by the Robert Ruggieri Foundation, an IRS 501 (C)(3) non profit corporation.
You can have a flag and flag holder for your loved one free of charge. Just submit the name of your veteran and the address at the bottom of the website and we will send a flag and flag holder to you. We will send you a replacement flag every year.
