Public Welcomed to 9-11 Flag Display
Nearly three-thousand American flags, 2-thousand nine hundred and 77 to be exact, are on display in Omaha for the next several days, remembering those who died on 9-11 eighteen years ago.
Each flag set in Memorial Park—the city’s tribute to heroes from World War Two, Korea and Vietnam—carries a victim’s name, age, where they are believed to have died, along with some personal information.
The display is open to the public, which is encouraged to walk among the flags, from six in the morning until 11 p-m through September 15.
According to the Omaha Rotary which plants each and every flag, 9-11 brought the country together during a time of crisis and the flags are not only a tribute to those who died but also to those who take the time to remember.
