I purchased this flag at the gift shop at the 9/11 Memorial. Right, I said gift shop. There is a retail experience at the 9/11 Memorial, but it is low key (especially compared to what's out there and what I've featured here). The store carries mostly books and simple gift items. I picked up this flag because I thought it pushed the envelope a little. It features the names of all those who perished in 9/11. Their names make up the stripes of the flag. It also highlights proceeds will be donated to 9/11 charities. That seems a little open-ended, and as I've highlighted in my collection, there isn't much (or any) accountability for corporate donations to 9/11 charities from the proceeds of various tribute, commemorative and memorial items. I do want to clarify that it is my understanding that many of the 9/11 families like this flag. If the families took issue with it, I'm sure it wouldn't be available for purchase. Regarding the gift shop, I don't take any issue with its existence. The 9/11 Memorial and soon-to-open Museum have operating expenses, and a retail operation allows them to generate earned income to go towards these costs.
