On October 25th 2001, George W. Bush signed into law a proposition unanimously passed by congress that would make September 11th a national holiday. This holiday, called “Patriot Day”, is a day of remembrance for the victims of the horrible terrorist attacks which took place on September 11th, 2001. On this day we show defiance and global unity against terrorism around the world.

 

Patriot Day is a day to remember the victims of the September 11th tragedy.  Not a a single American was left untouched by the tragedy in some way, over 10 years later our country and the world is still effected by it. Some positive things were brought about after 9-11. Tighter security measures have been put into place to protect us everyday. American's had a different outlook on the value of lives, family, friends, neighbors, volunteers and fellow citizens.

 

 

On September 11th we should all display our American flags and fly them at half staff to honor and remember the 2993 people that lost their lives in the terrorist attacks that occurred on that day. This is also a day to remember the heroes that risk and lost their lives in order to save others. They are the true Americans that put their life on the line for someone else. Carrot-Top Industries honors heroes everyday, submit yours to our Virtual Wall of Honor. We also offer a variety of products to memorialize our heroes, products like civil service flags,  grave markers, cemetery marking flags, September 11th flags and of course American flags. We would like to see your flag at half staff or any products you used to commemorate Patriot Day.

Remember that on September 11th the President requests that we observe a one minute of silence at 8:46 AM, the exact time that the first hijacked plane crashed into the World Trade Center. Other countries, our allies against terrorism around the world are also welcome to join with us on this day and fly their flags at half staff.
