Flags At Statehouse 180

The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board (CSRAB) commemorates the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 with a memorial flag display on the west lawn of the Ohio Statehouse. Since 2002, CSRAB has partnered with Handson Central Ohio and the Ohio Emergency Management Agency to display the 2,977 U.S. Flags that comprise the memorial. The U.S. flags represent the 2,977 victims of the Sept. 11 attack 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 8 until 5 p.m. Monday, September 12.
