MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -  A Flag Day Ceremony will take place on the flight deck of the USS Yorktown on Saturday, conducted by the local chapter of the Knights of Columbus, Council 9475, and Boy Scout Troops 59 and 529.

The ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. and is expected to last less than an hour. It will be taking place on Saturday instead of Sunday to accommodate church schedules.

The Boy Scouts will raise the flag at the stern of the USS Yorktown, followed by a presentation of the history of Flag Day. The Boy Scouts will then demonstrate how to fold the flag while elaborating on the 13 folds of the flag.

The USS Yorktown can be found at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum, located on 40 Patriots Point Road in Mount Pleasant.

Normal admission rates to Patriots Point apply.
