U.S. Flag Will Drape Court Building Through Anniversary Of 9/11 Attacks

PONTIAC (WWJ) – Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson has ordered a large American flag draped on the facade of the west wing of the Oakland County Circuit Court building in honor of those remembered during Labor Day and Patriot’s Day.

The 60-by-30-foot flag will remain in place through the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

“Our workers, first responders, and men and women in the military have given their blood, sweat and tears to build and protect the greatest nation on earth,” Patterson said. “The flag is on display as a token of our appreciation for their sacrifices.”

The flag was purchased from American Flag and Banner in Clawson with private funds in 2012.
