National 9/11 Flag Ceremony - DFD, Station 1
June, 16 2011

The National 9/11 Flag is one of the largest American flags to fly above the wreckage at Ground Zero (20’x30’). The flag was destroyed in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks on September 11 and has been slowly stitched back together over many years. The flag has been stitched by soldiers and schoolchildren who survived the shooting at Ft. Hood, Texas, by World War II veterans on the deck of the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor, by the family of Martin Luther King Jr. Today, members of the Dover Fire Department, local Fire Companies and citizens of Dover got their opportunity to participate in this historic endeavor. Currently, the flag is on a journey across America through the 10th Year Anniversary of 9/11, the goal of The National 9/11 Flag Tour is to display this historic flag at leading venues nationwide, to empower local service heroes in all 50 states with the privilege of stitching the flag back to its original 13-stripe format. The Dover Fire Department was granted the opportunity to retire a flag flown over the headquarters station. The flag was used to repair a section of the National 9/11 Flag. When complete, The National 9/11 Flag will become a part of the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum being built at the World Trade Center.
