Help Southern Utah Patriot create real change!

Support patriotism and justice by helping build the nation's tallest
American flagpole in Utah! 

American patriot and businessman, Scott Nielson, seeks support to build the tallest
American flagpole right in southern Utah.
When the initial battles of the Revolutionary War erupted in April 1775, only a handful of
colonists desired full independence from Britain, and those who did were viewed as
“radicals.” But soon, hostility and resentment grew against Britain as its powerful army
sought to crush the rebels with all its force over the next year. On July 2, 1776, in a near-unanimous vote, the Continental Congress voted in favor of complete independence from
Two days later, representatives from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of
Independence, a historical document largely authored by Thomas Jefferson in
Philadelphia on July 4. From then on, the birth of American independence has been
celebrated across the country on the Fourth of July with the firing of muskets and
cannons, concerts, parades, and bonfires.
The flag of the United States of America symbolizes freedom and liberty, of which,
Americans pledge their allegiance by standing attention and facing the flag with their
right hand over their heart as they recite the following: 
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for
which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
It’s been nearly 250 years since the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and the American flag, which symbolized the unionizing of the 13 original states. Today, the
American flag continues to uphold unity, freedom and justice.
Through times of war and peace, the very sight of the American flag has reassured
Americans and their friends that freedom and democracy are still alive, meanwhile
sending an ominous message to foes what America stands for, and what it will always
stand for. The tallest flag in the nation is coming to southern Utah. 
There is no other symbol or emblem that captures the glory and power of our great nationlike the American flag. Since 1777, and without interruption, it has flown proudly as ournational emblem, invoking deep emotions in the hearts of Americans, often bringingthem to tears. 

Now, southern Utah patriot and businessman, Scott Nielson, is building the largest
flagpole in the history of the United States right in Hurricane, Utah, a state proud to be
Nielson is a huge veteran supporter, and because of his wrongful arrest and false
accusers, his eyes were opened wide to everything that is wrong with the legal system in Washington County—an experience which he says is his driving force behind the project.

With this great flagpole, Nielson aims to help local residents restore their faith in the
county’s judicial system and across America. 
Nielson confirmed he is building the tallest free-standing flagpole in all of North
America, and if possible, the flagpole will be built on city property. While an exact site
has yet to be determined, the proposed plan is for the flagpole to be somewhere near Sand Hollow State Park in Hurricane, Utah, on the outskirts of St. George, the largest city in Washington County. According to Nielson, all funds raised through this campaign will be donated to the City of Hurricane. 
To date, the largest American flagpole in the U.S. stands 400 feet and is owned by Acuity Insurance. Acuity’s flagpole is located along the I-43 between Milwaukee and Green Bay, Wisconsin. The flagpole being built in southern Utah by Nielson will be 25 feet taller at 425 feet. 
“What at first presumed to cost around $500,000 has morphed into $3 million,” Nielson
says. “We will crowdfund for 24 months, at which point I will match funds. If we can
raise the set goal amount, we will move forward with construction.”
Nielson says this flagpole represents awareness of the issues in Washington County and injustices across the nation. It symbolizes remembrance and reverence towards our veterans from the past, present and future. “The flagpole will leave something iconic for generations to enjoy,” Nielson says.
The day the largest flag in the U.S. is unveiled to the community, there’s going to be a
HUGE celebration, Nielson says. “We anticipate we will have every veteran-supporting
group there—the Marine Corps, the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, Daughters of
American Revolution, and many more.”
Nielson says there will be a massive flag raising followed by a patriotic song, a flyover,
and parachute jumpers with a flag. Afterward, there will be festivities, including a fun
program involving a well-known singer, Nitro Circus, food festivities, as well as
