The Honor and Sacrifice Flag was developed on the 15th Anniversary of 9/11 to honor those in all divisions of public safety that lost their lives in an effort to save others. It’s an American symbol of thanks in memory of those heroic first responders. Finished with a canvas heading, grommets, and four rows of reinforced stitching on the fly end and constructed of 200 denier nylon, these flags are built for outdoor use.
