Patriot Day

In 2001, America was changed forever when four hijacked planes crashed into three separate areas, the Twin Towers, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The attacks shocked and horrified the nation. In the weeks and months after the tragic event, America united in solidarity to mourn for the victims. Reactions and messages of support came from around the world, with one thing in common: We are all Americans.

In the days after September 11th, the American flag became even more symbolic. One of the most significant photos after the attacks were of three firemen raising a flag at Ground Zero. You may recall seeing flags flying on not just houses, but on car windows or antennas, and people wearing flag pins on their lapels. Stores ran out of flags, with a demand for more. Flag makers had to work even longer and harder in order to keep up. Some people even wore the flag, emblazoned on their shirts or on hats.

While nearly 20 years have passed since the horrific events of that day with the Pentagon rebuilt along with a new World Trade Center tower, but the pain of the attacks are still felt deeply. Memorials where the attacks happened now stand, where one can come to pay their respects. The flags are still flying high, even though they are flown and displayed less often than they were in the days following the attack. Americans commemorated the fallen and showed strength during a tough time in the nation by displaying their flag, reminding everyone else that they would not be brought down.

We Will Never Forget.

September 11 Memorial Flags

Our lives changed forever on the morning of September 11, 2011, when terrorist attacks devastated New York City’s Twin Towers, the Pentagon in Washington DC, and flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Since September 11, 2011, countless troops have died in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other war zones around the world.

Each year, on September 11, we honor the victims of the September 11 attacks and those troops who have sacrificed their lives for our safety. Since September 11, Americans have become increasingly patriotic and Online Stores has supported Americans in the military by donating flags, flagpoles, and pins, among other items.

This year will mark the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Cities around the country are planning memorial events to honor the victims of the attacks and American troops in combat. Online Stores has a variety of beautiful September 11 memorial flags to help you make the day more meaningful.

The USA 9/11 Flag

The USA 9/11 flag is designed based upon the United States flag. Instead of the traditional blue, fifty-star Union field, however, the USA 9/11 flag features an embroidered image of the New York City Skyline with the Twin Towers, white stars, and the date, September 11, 2011. The flag is 3’x5’ with sewn stripes and durable brass grommets.

Always remember....

The 9/11 Always Remember flag is a beautiful way to honor the victims of the September 11 attacks. The nylon flag features red and white stripes at the top and bottom, a blue image of the Statue of Liberty, and the following poem:

Remember the heroes,
born at ground zero.
Remember the price,
so many still pay.
Move on, face forward,
but remember the day.

Always Remember 9-11

This flag is available in the large 3’x5’ size and a vertically oriented garden size.

The 9/11 Remembrance flag features bold images of the New York City and Twin Towers skyline, red and white stripes disappearing into the horizon, and blue stars in the background. The words “Always remember 9/11” appear in the foreground of the flag, with the “11” designed to look like the Twin Towers. This flag is also available in 3’x5’ or garden size.

The 9/11 We Will Never Forget flag is specifically designed to honor the 10-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks. The nylon flag features a photograph of the New York City skyline in the foreground and images of a police hat and firefighter’s hat in the upper left corner. The text “We Will Never Forget 2001-2011” appears in the upper right corner in bold white letters. This flag is made from top quality fabrics and can be used inside or outdoors.
