Bellevue’s annual Avenue of Flags display, whose existence was threatened after the March flood destroyed its uninsured flags, will more than survive, according to a news release from the Greater Bellevue Area Chamber of Commerce.

On the strength of “overwhelming support” received after the chamber issued an appeal to raise $6,000 to replace the flags, the display will expand beyond Mission Avenue and Galvin Road to include Fort Crook Road.

“Thanks to all the generous donations received from local citizens and businesses the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that our streets will once again be lined with American Flags,” the news release said.

“We are happy to announce that due to the overwhelming support, not only will flags be on Franklin Street, Galvin Street and Mission Avenue, Fort Crook Road will also see flags installed this year.”

New flags are being ordered. No date is set for the flags to be displayed.
