ABOUT THE FIELD OF FLAGS
The Field of Flags is one of the largest commemorations of 9/11 in the nation. In the years following the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, the Marietta Kiwanis expanded its flag-related activities to include the Field of Flags. This stunning visual tribute to 9/11 victims is held every five years at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield, in cooperation with the National Park Service. The awesome sight of 2996 large three-by-five foot flags flown, one for each life lost on that fateful day, is unforgettable. Included this year are 13 flags flying at half mast to honor those that were killed at Kabul Airport
