Sept. 11, 2001 Commemorative Flag
In the aftermath of September 11th, 2001 FlagsOnCars.com designed a
September 11th Commemorative Flag to answer the need for easily accessible
patriotic products in a nation reeling from those horrible attacks. In
addition to offering traditional United States flag products such as car
flags, outdoor flags, magnets and other patriotic products, we were granted a
patent by the US Patent office for the
September 11th Commemorative Flag.
This commemorative flag is
based on the standard design of the American Flag, representing the unity,
freedom and patriotism that became so desperately important to Americans after
the world trade centers fell. Overlaid on the field of stars, however, is the
silhouette of New York City, featuring the prominent twin World Trade Center
towers, as it appeared before the attacks. This represents all those who were
lost when the towers fell as well as recalling the way the NYC skyline looked
before it was changed forever.
Occasionally, the flag will also bear the words
"We Will Never Forget" in the white stripes of the bottom of the flag -
representing our commitment as a nation never to forget those innocent lives
that were lost for our freedom. It also reminds us of the ongoing sacrifices
that are made by our men and women in the military to defend our freedom
around the world.
In the days immediately following the tragedy of September 11, 2001,
FlagsOnCars.com was proud to be able to present the United Way Sept. 11th fund
a check for $10,000 to help the survivors and families of the victims in New
York City. You can see the check that we sent the United Way and Mayor
Giuliani's thank-you letter . Loraine even got to present the check to the
United Way in person - here's the picture!
We're pleased to continue
this tradition of giving today in all that we do. As you can see from our
Photo Gallery, this special flag continues to be used as a commemorative flag
around the world and to raise money and scholarship funds for the families of
those who were lost on that day. Truly, we will never forget.
