The symbols on the flag evoke what was lost on September 11, 2001 and what still endures. The 40 yellow stars represent the victims of hijacked United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The five-sided figure represents the Pentagon, where 184 people died. At the center of the flag are the Twin Towers, where the greatest loss of life occurred that day.
