National 9/11 Flag to Visit Southport NC

February 12, 2011 - Southport, NC - The National 9/11 Flag was severely damaged in the collapse of the North Tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. It was rescued by members of the New York City Fire Department and seven years later stitched back together by tornado survivors in Greensburg, Kansas. The Flag is currently on a journey across America where local service heroes and the public will be given the privilege of stitching the flag back to its original 13 stripe format. Once the flag is made whole again, it will become part of the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum at Ground Zero. Due to the efforts of Joan and Dick Stewart of St. James who lost their son on 9/11, the Flag will be making its only stop in North Carolina in Southport on July 3rd and 4th. It will be featured at the Naturalization Ceremony, the 4th of July Parade and the Sea Notes Concert. The public is invited to participate in the flag stitching ceremony on July 4th from 2 to 6PM at the Southport Baptist Church Christian Ministry Center.
