Nation of Patriots Flag Tour

Erie Harley Owners Group Host
Nation of Patriots Flag Tour Through Pennsylvania

Honoring America’s Armed Forces
Escorting the American Flag Through 48 States

Thursday, August 31st and Friday, September 1st.

Every year The Nation of Patriots organizes a national effort that pays tribute to, and honors, all of America's Armed Forces - Past, Present, and Fallen. This united effort is known as The Patriot Tour.  It all begins on Memorial Day weekend.  A group of riders escorts one American Flag on the back of a motorcycle to Woodstock Harley-Davidson in IL.  Upon arrival, the flag is transferred to the IL escort.  The next day the Flag is taken to IN and then to MI...and on and on for 100 days, through 48 states.  The Flag finally makes it full circle arriving back in WI on Labor Day weekend.

It’s the very foundation of the American Flag and all it represents that our brave men and women in the military have stood and died defending, continue to stand and protect, and will forever fight for.

Erie, PA is the ONLY stop in Pennsylvania on this tour. The flag will be escorted from Mentor to Harley-Davidson of Jamestown on Thursday, August 31st then to Warren Western Reserve Harley-Davidson on Friday, September 1st.  We typically have over 100 motorcycles ride in this event.

The money raised from this event will benefit one or more local wounded veterans.  Last year three Erie veterans shared over $4,500 from money raised from this ride and matched by Nation of Patriots.
