Remembering 9-11

The Flag Manufacturers Association of America urges all citizens to proudly display our nation‘s greatest symbol, the American flag, this Sunday, Sept. 11, in honor of those who fell victim to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

This date has been designated as Patriot Day, but it has added significance this year because of the 10th anniversary of the attacks.

The President of the United States issues a proclamation each year in the days leading up to September 11, requesting that government officials and citizens observe the day appropriately. There is no better way to honor our country and our fellow Americans than by flying your American flag half-staff on the anniversary of one of the darkest days in our nation‘s history.

It is thought by many that the worst terrorist attack in American history brought out the best in the American people. We flew our American flags proudly, in a spirit of unity that has seldom been seen in modern times. We were brought together under one symbol and on this anniversary it is important for us to unite once again.

You still have time to get your flag from Fantastic Flags.

Another option is our American heroes flag, dedicated to supporting our heroes who are returning from the front. Purchase the American Heroes standard size flag for $24.99 or the garden flag for $13.99. All net proceeds from this weather resistant flag benefit military families and wounded warriors through Operation Homefront.
