More than 600,000 flags placed on National Mall to honor lives lost to COVID-19
WASHINGTON (CNN)—More than 600,000 flags have been placed on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
The flags are part of a public art installation created by artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg.
Each flag represents a person in America who lost their life to the coronavirus.
As of Tuesday, at 11 a.m., there were 676,286 thousand flags.
The tribute is called “In America: Remember” and runs until October 3.
Visitors at the memorial can personalize flags to honor someone they lost.
If you can’t attend the exhibit in person, you can write a dedication online and a volunteer will assemble the flag.
