Painted-flag-eternal-flame

An artists' rendition of the American flag is painted on the side of a building in New York. In place of the field of stars in the upper left corner of the flag is an image of Manhattan, with the twin towers still standing, and the Statue of Liberty off in the distance. To the right, an eternal flame is painted in honor of the police officers and firefighters who gave their lives on Sept. 11, 2001.
