Senator Demands Answers After American Flag Reportedly Banned from Beloved National Park


Famous Alaskan park officials are in trouble because they are said to have told construction teams not to fly the American flag in the park.

In a letter to National Park Service Director Charles Sams, Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, asked for an account for what officials at Denali National Park did. He pointed out that the construction crew was told to take down the flag on the “eve of Memorial Day weekend.”

The claimed event seems to have been first reported by the Alaska Watchman, a conservative newspaper in the area, using the words of an unnamed construction worker at the park.

The details of the story have not been independently checked by Fox News Digital.

He wrote in his letter that an American flag measuring 3 feet by 5 feet was attached to one of the construction trucks working on the project. However, for “reasons that remain unclear,” someone at the National Park Service (NPS) told the construction crew to take down the flag.

“This is disgusting, especially since it’s happening so close to Memorial Day, our most solemn national holiday, when people wear our flag to remember those who died while serving our country,” Sullivan wrote. “The American flag should be honored, especially over Memorial Day weekend. Federal employees shouldn’t be able to block it.”

The senator from Alaska said that he couldn’t find any rules that would stop people from flying American flags on public land. He said that such a rule would be strange because national parks are for “the enjoyment of American citizens.”

Sullivan told Sams that he needed to look into what happened and do something to “make sure something like this doesn’t happen again in American national parks.”

Alaskans have also reportedly planned a “patriotic convoy with flags” from Fairbanks, Alaska, to Denali National Park on Sunday as a way to protest the event.

The protest was planned on Facebook, and as of Sunday morning, 23 people had stated they would be there and over 100 were interested.

Fox News Digital asked the National Park Service and Denali National Park for comments, but they didn’t answer right away.
