The Color Guard is a special organization that represents the Hawk Battalion by ceremonially presenting the Colors (National Flag) at school and community events. They appear at community parades, and special functions hosted by Hanahan High School and community organizations. The Color Guard also competes in competitive events with the Drill Team.
The Honor Guard raises the National Flag prior to the start of every home football game on the flag pole located in the end zone nearest the scoreboard. They are also responsible for retiring the Flag (removing it from the flag pole) immediately following the game.
