Flags of Remembrance

Flags of Remembrance

Join us to honor and remember those who were killed in 9/11. We arrange 2,977 flags in the shape of the World Trade Center Towers each year. This emotional and meaningful display draws regular visitors as well as newcomers to the area with strong ties to this tragedy. This event is intended to broaden the awareness of what happened that day, especially for young people who did not experience this historical event as an adult. Many families were impacted and we hope this offers continued peace to them.
