The Flag Issue:Celebrating Scientology's New Spiritual Center
Building for the Future
Milestone accomplishments, accelerating in 2007 with release of the Basics Books and Lectures of Dianetics and Scientology, culminated in the crowning achievement for the Scientology religion worldwide—the opening of the Flag Building, marking the completion of an evolutionary step for the religion and a new era of expansion.
The Basics Books and Lectures of Dianetics and Scientology, the foundation of the Scientology religion, are released after meticulous restoration to L. Ron Hubbard’s original written and spoken words.
To meet the demand for the Basics Books and Lectures and other Dianetics and Scientology materials in more than 50 languages, new publishing facilities are established: Bridge Publications in Los Angeles and New Era Publications in Copenhagen, forming the world’s largest all-digital, print-on-demand publishers.

The 267,000-square-foot Fort Harrison religious retreat is rededicated after an 11 month, top-to-bottom renovation and restoration, to provide accommodations, restaurants and amenities for parishioners, participating in religious services and to serve as a civic and cultural hub for the greater Clearwater community.
