Flags Across Rosslyn

Neighborhood commemorates Sept. 11 anniversary by flying American flags

For several days surrounding the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, many of Rosslyn's largest buildings will fly American flags to pay tribute to those who lost their lives on this tragic day. The flags also recognize the heroic efforts of countless individuals from fire and police departments who responded and helped support those in need. This annual tradition started spontaneously in Rosslyn following the 9/11 attacks. Loosely coordinated today by the Rosslyn Business Improvement District, the flag display is an expression of patriotism from the area business community.

"Many members of the Rosslyn community were working here during the 9/11 attacks and recall firsthand the devastating impact they had on Arlington and our local community," says Rosslyn BID President Mary-Claire Burick. "I'm grateful to our property managers for coming together each year to fly the American flag to honor those who lost their lives on this tragic day. Even as time passes, it's important that they not be forgotten."

This year, a record 29 flags are flying at these buildings, which are managed by  American Real Estate Partners, Brookfield Properties, Cushman-Wakefield, Dittmar Company, Hyatt Centric, JBG SMITH, Jones Lang LaSalle, Monday Properties, Lincoln Property Management, Tishman-Speyer and The Wade Company:
