Approached by the White House for assistance, a flag lapel pin was designed for the one year anniversary of 9/11. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush led a moment of silence at a White House ceremony. Attention to detail influenced the pin’s design, as it hangs vertically on the lapel, featuring cloth that is draped. This replicates the iconic image of the American flag that was draped over the side of the Pentagon following the attacks. Presented to invitation-only attendees in remembrance of those whose lives were tragically lost, the pins were produced as a limited edition, with the number and ceremony date stamped on the back.
