National 9/11 Flag to stop in Juneau

The National 9/11 Flag will be making a stop in Juneau this August, en route to its final home in New York City, according to a release from The New York Says Thank You Foundation.

The banner will be in Juneau on Monday, Aug. 15 at Centennial Hall.

The flag was initially recovered from a construction site in the aftermath of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, near where the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers stood in New York City. It has since been patched and resewn, first by a group of Greensburg, Kan., tornado survivors, and since then by local service heroes across the country. The group’s goal is to have the flag ready for unveiling at the World Trade Center Memorial’s dedication, which is scheduled for Sept. 11 of this year.

People in Juneau are encouraged to nominate local heroes to sew a stitch into the rebuilt flag. Nominations must be made by Aug. 8 on the website
