The Fleur-de-1is, Union Jack, and Stars and Stripes all have flown over this corner of Northwestern Pennsylvania. The Fleur-de-lis was brought here by Captain Celoron de Blainville in 1749. The British flag was probably flown at the Buckaloons a trading post downriver, and it is believed that Colonel Daniel Brodhead's expedition of 1779 brought the first American flag to the area. A lead plate, as shown on the other side of this monument, was buried near here by Celoron
at the start of his journey down the Allegheny River claiming the land for France. This plate has not been found but two others were discovered, one at the confluence of the Ohio and Muskingum Rivers, at what is now Marietta, the other on the Great Kanawha River, at what is now Point. Pleasant, West Virginia. This Three Flags remembrance is sponsored by the Kinzua Dam Vacation Bureau, the Northwest Pennsylvania Heritage Foundation and the Warren County Historical Society
to commemorate the rich heritage of our region
