Councilman Peter Denmark and Mayor Dan Blair hold a WWII era 48 star ships flag that has been presented to the City of Whittier by the Prince William Sound Museum. The flag is intended to be flown on special occasions such as Memorial Day, the 4th of July, Labor Day and Veterans Day.. The flag honors the heritage of Whittier as a WWII military port constructed by pioneer civilian construction workers and military personnel. Whittier is one of two towns in Alaska that were created as a result of World War Two.
