A Salem Icon -- The Flags of the Day at the Hawthorne Hotel

Each day of the year we change the two flags flying on the front of the Historic Hawthorne Hotel here in Salem, Ma. This is our attempt to help all of us remember that we live in a wider place called the world. We hope this small gesture in some way fosters more peaceful relations to our fellow inhabitants of planet Earth.

We fly both a country flag and a state flag. On this particular Monday, set aside in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we hope you will take a moment to reflect on how knowing more about others leads to more respect amongst people and nations.
