A Tragic Day

September 11 Flags

 These three flags help us tell a dreadful story to generations to come of what 9/11 is all about.

The Flag of Honor and the Flag of Heroes, displayed the the NYC 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero and the House of Flags, were designed with the intent of immortalizing the victims of September 11, 2001

Flag  of  Honor

Over 3,000 names,  all those who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993,. On Airplanes, the Pentagon and the World Trace Center.


“Now and forever it represents their immortality.
We shall never forget them.”





 Flag  of  Heroes

The Flag of Heroes contains the names of each of the Emergency Services personnel who died in the terrorist attacks of 9/11 including FDNY, PAPD, NYPD, EMS, and Court Officers.


“Now and forever it represents their immortality.
We shall never forget them.”



  Never Forget Flag


The Never Forget Flag created by Gwen Loiacono, shown on the left.
This is the version on display at House of Flags.

  • The stars symbolize the airplanes that were needlessly sacrificed on 9-11-2001.The star outside the pentagon represents the plane diverted by the brave passengers, saving hundreds of lives.
  • The red background of the flag symbolizes the lives lost and the bloodshed of our fellow Americans… past, present and future.
  • The pentagon and two rectangles represent three of the most recognized structures ever built on US soil. The Twin Towers may be out of our sight, but never out of our minds.
  • The circle around the pentagon represents the unity that occurred after the tragedy. Instead of fear and helplessness, Americans united, to comfort grieving hearts and restore shattered dreams.
  • The GOD BLESS AMERICA slogan has been adopted to represent the hope and faith of our nation… a reminder to the world that evil may pierce our hearts, but God will permeate our souls.


The NEVER FORGET version of the flag was added in 2004, at the request of the US Army’s 42nd Infantry Division.

This flag is not currently on display at the House of Flags.
