New York State, together with the National September 11th Memorial & Museum, has unveiled the new 9/11 memorial flag (above).

The navy blue flag is emblazoned with a white Pentagon surrounded by 40 yellow stars – memorializing the planes that crashed in Washington and Pennsylvania. 40 people died in the Shanksville, Pennsylvania crash. Another 125 died at the Pentagon.

At the center of the flag are two white columns, symbolizing the World Trade Center Towers.

Governor Cuomo explained the inscription on the flag, which reads: “We Remember.”

"As New Yorkers, we have responsbilities to remember," he said. "Part of remembering is honoring the people who have been lost; the families of people who have been lost; the first responders who lost their lives that day."

The flag will be flown over the World Trade Center memorial site this Sunday. It will also be flown at the State Capitol building.

I like the design of the flag. It is very symbolic of all three sites.

The design is really awful and is sooo boring and obvious. I recommend it for the euro pentagon in argentina.
