Replacement flag "Anacortes All-America City". In 1962, Wallie Funk and Bud Strom were instrumental in getting Anacortes accepted as an All American City, but doing a lot of paperwork, going to Washington D.C. to present our town and what has been done here. Apparently, there were some persons who did not think this should be done. The original flag was flown and it "disappeared". This replacement flag was presented to Wallie Funk by the city on his 90th birthday, April 29, 2012.

This temporary arch was erected over Commercial Avenue at 6th Street for the Washington State Convention of "10,000" Elks who converged on Anacortes during August 17-19, 1923. An "official decorator" came to Anacortes in August 1922 to transform Commercial Avenue. The 8-17-1922, ANACORTES AMERICAN reported, "Gay flags will blanket city". "At 6th and Commercial the big Elks arch stands decorated with flags, bunting, and Elks' (sic) heads. All telegraph and telephone poles are decorated with flags, bunting, and greenery, the latter furnished and put up by the Boys Club." This view looks north on Commercial. The Keystone Building is visible at right; J. C. Penney occupies the ground floor
