Westfield honored Flag Day on Sunday with the annual Flag Day standout.
Senator Don Humason hosted the event in the whip city.
Several people gathered near the Great River Bridges holding the American flag and showing their pride for what it represents.
"We just invited people to come out and every year they show up in great numbers from scouts to veterans to regular citizens just to display the flag and wave at traffic and to remind everybody that we have a great country," said Humason.
Senator Humason and those who joined him collected old and tattered flags as well.
