The National 9/11 flag is making a brief stop in Washington D.C. today. The flag, which once hung in tatters around Ground Zero, is in the process of being restored.

The flag is 20 feet high and 30 feet wide. The remains of the flag sat in a Pennsylvania storage shack for three years.

It is being put back together with retired American flags from all 50 states. Today, family members of 9/11 victims put stitches in the flag.

Upon completion it will be put into the permanent collection an the National September 11th Memorial Museum in New York City.
