Ohio Statehouse to commemorate 9/11 with flag display


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Nearly 3,000 flags will be on display on the lawn of the Ohio Statehouse to mark the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The display is part of a remembrance ceremony scheduled for Friday. The Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, which oversees the Statehouse grounds, says the flags represent the lives lost during the 2001 attacks.

When seen from above, the flags’ arrangement is designed to represent the World Trade Center towers, with a space in the shape of the Pentagon and an open strip representing the field in Pennsylvania where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed.

The flags will be on display Friday through Monday.

Also Friday, Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) planned to participate in a 9/11 memorial observance at a suburban Columbus park.
