ETtheLibrarian sent me these photos of the flag installation on the DC Mall.
This is the flag installation on the Mall for those that have died from COVID. If you can get there before the exhibition closes you can dedicate one of the flags to someone.
If you cannot visit in person, you can dedicate a flag on this website until September 30th, and it will appear in physical form on the National Mall.
Nothing really captures the horrible nature of what those flags stand in for, but the sound they make when the breeze goes by makes me feel they are whispering to us.
The exhibition is open for public participation
September 17th – October 3rd, 2021
Weekdays, 10AM – Sunset
Weekends 9AM – Sunset
What do you think of this memorial? Is anyone thinking of dedicating a flag?
Update from lowtechcyclist:
Quite stunning to see the COVID death toll represented like this. pic.twitter.com/mae0A9nWDw
