Statehouse organizers are preparing to honor the victims of September 11th with a yearly tribute.

On Thursday evening, volunteers will set up 2,999 small flags — each flag representing a life lost on 9/11.

The flags are planted into the lawn in the shape of the World Trade Center Towers and the Pentagon.

Each year, leaders at the Ohio Statehouse remember the lives of those lost in the terrorist attacks with the display.

This year, HandsOn Central Ohio is organizing a flag display on the West Lawn of the Statehouse.

The flags will be on display through September 11th.
