The National 9/11 Flag, destroyed in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks, is on a cross-country journey to be stitched back to its original 13-stripe format using pieces of fabric from American flags destined for retirement in all 50 states.
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is proud to host the official Stitching Restoration for the state of Florida. On Feb. 18, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., New York City firefighters will assist local heroes and visitors in a historic stitching ceremony.
Attendees will help sew the Florida restorative patch, which features a flag that has flown over Kennedy Space Center, to The National 9/11 Flag. The flag will be fully raised for display in the Rocket Garden at 4:00 p.m.
