COLUMBUS, Ohio (WOIO) - The lawn of the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus was adorned with American flags to commemorate 18 years since the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
A total of 2,977 flags, one representing each victim in the attacks at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93, were placed on the West side of the Ohio Statehouse.
The design depicts the two World Trade Center towers with a space in the shape of the Pentagon and an open strip that represents the field where the United Airlines flight crashed in Pennsylvania.
Volunteers helped put the flags in place.
The memorial will be on display until Friday, Sept. 13.
