Where is the 9/11 flag?



When an American flag was raised by firefighters on 9/11 over the smoking ruins of the World Trade Center, it reminded some of Iwo Jima. But one of 9/11’s most iconic artifacts is missing, CNN reports.

The original flag was “either misplaced, stolen or secreted away by unknown forces in the chaos of Ground Zero,” say makers of a documentary airing on the channel this week.

(Mayor Rudy) Giuliani staffers procured what they believed to be the Ground Zero flag several days later for a ceremony at Yankee Stadium, and it then went on a highly publicized world tour. Did officials know then that it wasn’t really the flag?

You can help look for the flag here.
