Commemorative United States Flag

Description (Brief)
This U.S. flag bolted through two grommets onto a wooden staff and is meant for holding by hand. The staff is marked with the flight numbers (11, 77, 93, and 175) of the airliners hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001, and has hash marks for the number of people killed on each flight. These areas are covered with clear tape. The flag is printed on nylon, and is marked "Nyl-Glo, 100% Nylon Bunting," with an eagle profile logo, and "Annin & Co., Since 1847, Made in USA."
