Although there is no large Memorial Day parade in Boston proper, the planting of the Garden of Flags around the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on the Common is as moving and as proper a ceremony as any to be found. Volunteers begin planting more than 37,000 flags honoring the fallen at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23. The reading of the names of those who have given their lives since Sept. 11, 2001 begins on May 24 at 10:30 a.m. The Flag Garden is organized by the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund, and remains in place for all to see until the evening of Monday the 28th.
