Celtic Studios officially retires weather-beaten American flag

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Celtic Studios held a flag ceremony Tuesday for the official retiring of the weather-beaten American flag at the O'Connor building.

Carl Smith II, a flood evacuee from Denham Springs, was the recipient. His uncle is a U.S. Army veteran.

Besides being the centerpiece of Hollywood South, Celtic was a place of refuge for thousands of flood victims as it had been previously during recent hurricanes.
