9-11 flag comes to Dover today

The national 9-11 flag that flew at Ground Zero on September 11th 2001 will be on display today in Delaware’s capital city. 

The flag was left in tatters following the terrorist attacks, but stitched back together seven years later by survivors of a devastating tornado in Greensburg, Kansas.  At a “stitching ceremony” today, Delawareans will have an opportunity to add to the restoration effort.  The flag appearance is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. (Thursday) at Dover Fire Company, 103 S. Governor’s Ave.  Governor Jack Markell, Delaware National Guard Adjutant General Frank Vavala and Health and Social Services Secretary Rita Landgraf are expected to take part.
