Protection of the Flag Monument is a historic war memorial located in Academy Park at Athens, Bradford County, Pennsylvania. It was designed and erected between 1900 and 1902, by noted architectural firm McKim, Mead & White, with a sculpture by George Thomas Brewster. It has a granite pedestal topped by a bronze sculpture group. The sculpture is of an adult soldier and a young drummer boy. A commemorative plaque indicates it was dedicated in memory of the soldiers who fought in defense of the flag.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. It is located in the Athens Historic District.[1]
