Raising of the flag, Conch Republic Independence Photo by Bill Klipp.

The public is invited to join members of the Conch Republic Navy, the Conch Republic CIA – Sshhh! and the 82nd Auborne’s at Fort Zachary Taylor, Friday, April 21 at high noon for the official raising of the Conch Republic colors. The occasion, undertaken with due pomp and circumstance, kicks off more than a week of Conch Republic Days Celebration events commemorating that fateful day in 1982 when the republic was conceived in strife as “a sovereign state of mind” that “Seceded Where Others Failed.” Dress whites not required. Conch shells and stale Cuban bread encouraged. For more information visit ConchRepublic.com.
