A memorial flag display on the west lawn of the Ohio Statehouse commemorates the attacks of September 11, 2001. Volunteers from across central Ohio installed the 2,977 flags that represent the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and United Airlines Flight 93. When seen from above, the design represents the World Trade Center towers, with a space in the shape of the Pentagon and an open strip representing the field in Pennsylvania. Located on the West Lawn of the Ohio Statehouse, the memorial will be open to the public from 7 p.m. Monday, September 9 until 12 p.m. Friday, September 13.

Thanks to all the volunteers, Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, HandsOn Central Ohio, Franklin County Commissioners, Columbus Fire Department, and the National Veterans Memorial and Museum, and the Ohio General Assembly.
