Interfaith celebration of Flag Day at Prospect Park, Brooklyn. Deputy Mayor John J. Bennett opens the ceremony. Mayor William O'Dwyer gives speech calling for brotherhood among all races and religions. He says that this principle has been passed down from the founding fathers. Speaks against intolerance and bigotry - we must not only say we are against race hatred, we must believe it in our heart. Closes with band playing.
