Georgetown College (1789-1815)
This flag, made by the senior class of the Georgetown Visitation Academy, was blessed and raised on December 9, 1917, in honor of all Georgetown alumni who were serving in the armed forces. Thomas R. Marshall, the Vice President of the United States, spoke at the ceremony: ' I come here gladly as an official, and very gladly as an individual of the Republic, to congratulate this ancient and honorable institution upon its long and historic course of loyalty, patriotism and devotion for the cause of the Republic.'
