Sept 11th, The Story Behind Our Very Own 9/11 Flag Design

Our company decided to design a flag to represent the tragedy of 9/11. Lorraine, a first grade teacher at the time, brainstormed with her students and by a collaboration of 7 year olds, family members and employees, and the boss…everyone came together to design the famous 9/11 flag. By the third week, we sent the design into production. By the end of October, we were able to sell enough to send United Way a check for ALL the sales…$10,000 for the disaster relief fund. All the people involved, including the first graders were very proud. Since then, we made different items using that logo such as September 11th key tags, magnets, pins and even patented it. We didn’t want PA or Washington to be left out, so we later designed a 9-11 Never Forget Pin https://www.flagsoncars.com/9-11-never-forget-pin.html that includes them as well. To read the full story and see the copy of the Thank You letter we received from NY City, please visit Sept. 11, 2001 Flag History. Since 9-11, our flag has flown around the world with our military. We are so proud. Click here to see all the September 11th, 2001 products available. https://www.flagsoncars.com/sept-11–2001-products.html

Remembering: 12 Years

9-11FLAGIMAGE

Sometimes it seems as if it were just yesterday when our Nation was attacked and our lives were forever changed. The memories of that day are still so vibrant and fresh for most of us. Do you remember where you were when the towers fell? When the news broke? How you felt? Did you fear? Rage? Cry?

As vibrant and fresh as the memories are for many of us, this year marks 12 years since the horrible events of September 11, 2001. Twelve years: there are Jr. High students who were born after the attacks. How do we talk to these kids about what happened that day? How do we convey to them how much things were changed forever?

Maybe we can’t ever convey it to them. Maybe all we can do is remember. To share where we were, what we remember, how we were changed. On this day, FlagsOnCars joins with the nation in remembering.

 

Have you seen this touching story?

FlagsOnCars.com loves a good love story. Especially when it involves one of our committed vets. Perhaps you’ve seen this, perhaps not. Either way, it’s as good a story the 2nd time as it was the first.

The astounding progress of 23-year-old Taylor Morris, a U.S. military bomb disposal expert who lost both legs and arms in an explosion, is testament to the unwavering support of his family, friends and girlfriend Danielle Kelly – who has been by his side every step of the way. Their love story is one for the record books. Read the full story on the Daily Mail’s website here.

Better than reading the story, however is this beautiful montage of photos of Taylor Morris’ recovery and the love he shares with his girlfriend, Daniell Kelly. The couple has recently purchased a home with the love and support of the community that has rallied around them. See the photo montage below:
