As promised last week, here are some shots of the 911 flag exhibit that was displayed in Gresham, Oregon several years ago. This was a very large exhibit with many hundreds of flags. There were basically four sections to the exhibit. There was a section of special flags with names of emergency personnel who lost their lives on 911 printed on the red stripes of the flag. An extra white section at the bottom of the flag indicated what it represented.

A second, much larger section, similar to the first, had the names of the victims of the tragedy printed on both the red and white stripes with the extra white section at the bottom indicating what it represented.

In both of these first groups, no two flags had the same list of names.

I will describe the other groups of flags in part 2 of this posting.

Minolta S414, auto.

The first shot is one of the flags with the names of emergency personnel.


The second shot shows a portion of the flag group with the victim names. The resolution of the image makes it impossible to read the names.


(continued in part 2)

The second shot is quite remarkable. Since each flag is unqiue with different names, that's even more impressive.
