The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) will commemorate 20th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001 with a memorial flag display on the west lawn of the Ohio Statehouse. On Thursday, September 9, 2021, a short program will begin at 4 p.m. on the West Plaza of the Ohio Statehouse.  After the program, volunteers from across central Ohio will install the 2,977 flags that comprise the memorial.


The flags represent the 2,977 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. Thursday, September 9 until 12 p.m. Monday, September 13, 2021.  


Volunteers are welcome for installation.  Please contact Dayna Jalkanen, or 614-728-2697 to sign up for this event.
