9/11 Memorial Flag

The Flag features 3,012 small American flags sewn together, one for each victim of the 9/11 Attacks.

Each small flag measures 3" x 5" and carries the name of a victim.  The names were written on the flags by Boy Scouts and their Fathers from Bucks County, PA.

The Flag features the national flags of 86 nations, representing victims of those nationalities lost in the 9/11 Attacks.

Each national flag measures 11" x 23".  They were made by students from five New York and New Jersey schools.

The Flag features the emblems of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, New York/New Jersey Port Authority, New York Police Department, Fire Department of New York, the FBI and the New York Fire and Rescue & Emergency Medical Technicians.  Each of these organizations lost members as a result of the 9/11 Attacks.

The Flag also features the insignia of all branches of the U.S. Armed Services.

In the upper left corner of the Flag, where the field of stars would normally be on a U.S. flag, are four American flags.  These flags were all flown simultaneously on December 21, 2001 to commemorate the victims of the 9/11 Attacks.

The flag in the uppermost left corner was flown over the U.S. Capital Building in Washington, D.C., sponsored by Congressman Jim Greenwood.  The flag to the right of that one was flown over the New York Statehouse in Albany New York, sponsored by Governor George Patacki.  The flag below that one was flown over the Bucks County Courthouse in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  The flag to the left of that one was flown over the Pennsylvania Statehouse in Harrisburg, PA, sponsored by Governor Mark Schweiker and Senator Jack Conti.

The Flag will continue to travel around the tri-state area and be displayed to commemorate the victims of the 9/11 Attacks.
