Mohawk Holding Flag Raising Ceremony on June 19

Calhoun, GA, June 11, 2019-Mohawk will host a special American flag raising ceremony on June 19. 

The flag will be the largest in Georgia, measuring 45 feet high by 75 feet wide and weighing over 150 pounds. Towering from a 130-foot pole on the company’s Union Grove campus, the flag will be a landmark for drivers along I-75, one of the nation’s most heavily trafficked highways. 

During the event, Mohawk will recognize 15 area employees with 30 or more years of service. 

In addition, Mohawk is supporting more than 120 nonprofit organizations, including the Northwest Georgia Council of Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta. Local scouts will help raise the flag during the ceremony and, afterwards, will receive badges for their uniforms. 

Mohawk will also donate flooring to Camp Sidney Dew and Camp Misty Mountain in northwest Georgia to refurbish indoor community spaces for use by future generations and will provide $10,000 to sponsor scouts to attend either camp or their national convention.

After the flag is raised, Rebecca Howell of Cochran, Georgia, most recently featured on NBC’s The Voice, will perform the national anthem.
