911 Flag Displayed at Arrowhead Stadium
An American Flag that survived the 911 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center was in Kansas City. The special flag was displayed during an emotional pre-game ceremony at Arrowhead on Sunday. Two firefighters from New York City as well as survivors of the Greensburg tornado took part in the ceremony.
Destroyed in the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11 and stitched back together seven years later by tornado survivors in Greensburg, Kansas, The National 9/11 Flag is a living testament to the resilience and compassion of the American people.
Currently on a journey across America through the 10th Year Anniversary of 9/11, the goal of the National 9/11 Flag Tour is to display this historic flag at leading venues nationwide, to empower local service heroes in all 50 states with the privilege of stitching the flag back to its original 13-stripe format, and to inspire 300 million Americans with the flag's rich visual history in order to deepen our sense of citizenship and national pride and to bolster the spirit of volunteerism on the 9/11 Anniversary and year-round.
When complete, The National 9/11 Flag will become a part of the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum being built at the World Trade Center.
