Field of Flags Honoring Lives Lost to COVID-19

From September 17 to October 3, 2021, the National Mall in Washington, DC, will be covered by more than 620,000 white flags, each about a foot tall, representing the American lives lost to COVID-19 and holding written memories from loved ones. The flags will be packed tightly near the Washington Monument and the National Museum of African and African American History and Culture. Visitors will be invited to personalize flags for some they have lost. The installation, “In America: Remember,” will also have a virtual component: those who cannot visit in person can dedicate a flag and write a personal message on the In America: Remember website. A volunteer will handwrite the message on a flag that will be planted on the National Mall. A digital version of the message will appear on the website’s map of the art installation. Visitors to the website can also take a look at the previous installation from fall 2020 and learn how this art went from the physical to the digital world.
