San Pedro presented with historic Portuguese flag by San Pedro Director, Mary Fischer. The flag was acquired by daughter (and SPA member) Diane Fischer, now living in Vienna and working there with the United Nations. The flag flew over the Memorial Plaza at the UN Headquarters in Vienna, Austria and was retired in August 2009. The Memorial Plaza is situated in the courtyard of the Vienna International Center dedicated to the memory of all UN staff that have died in the line of duty. The flags of 192 member nations are on display. The flag is on display in our Capela.
