Mission

The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House and Museum preserves the history of the making of the Star-Spangled Banner Flag, promotes the legacy of craftswoman Mary Young Pickersgill, and inspires personal connections to Baltimore and American history through place-based learning and the interpretation of the diverse lives of individuals who lived in the historic house since 1793.

Diversity, Equity, Accessibility and Inclusion Statement

Thank you for allowing us to take the last couple of weeks to consider our role in using the Flag House’s mission to be an ally in the fight for equality. The Flag House’s code of ethics and strategic plan hold the museum accountable to make actionable changes that address accessibility, diversity, equity, and inclusion from our administration and board of directors to the way we interpret the history of the Flag House. We cannot be silent in the face of inequality and discrimination and must also work with our museum colleagues to advocate for equal pay and job advancement for BIPOC museum professionals. The Flag House is committed to taking action alongside our Baltimore City partners to execute its mission in a way that affects meaningful change within our museum and community.
