PARADISE, Calif.-- More than 1100 flags in Paradise were stored at the Elks Lodge that was completely destroyed during the Camp Fire in November.

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) raised nearly $2,000 to pay for the replacement of 85 flags for the town of Paradise. Saturday the flags were presented.

The Town says the flags are a symbol of strength and a small step in helping them move forward.

Paradise councilman and Chairman of the Paradise Parade of Flags Michael Zuccolillo said the annual Parade of Flags is a tradition that's been in existence for two decades.

"Paradise is a town that respects our veterans and respects their service and know that many gave all.  It's something near and dear to our hearts," said Zuccolillo.

He goes on to say, "It wasn't something that was gonna die with the fire." 

The Parade of Flags will be raised again this Memorial Day on May 27th.
