New, larger American flag to go up by Bridge #2
The massive American flag that flies near Bridge Number Two is taken down to prepare for the tenth anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks.
If you've ever wondered just how they fold up the extra large 40 by 80 yard flag, well it takes many steps.
The flag never touched the ground but was stuffed into a clean bin.
It was later taken in to have a tear mended and properly stored.
A new and bigger flag measuring 50 by 100 yards or about the size of a football field will take its place this Friday.
The flag will pay tribute to those who died in the tragedy on September 11th and will display US pride at the border.
