First Responder Heritage Flag
“We are the land of the free because we are the home of the brave.”
On the anniversary of September 11th we at The Heritage Flag Company knew that we wanted to do something special to honor the men and women that are willing to run towards danger to protect our nation’s citizens. We wanted to honor those firefighters, law enforcement officers, and EMT’s that keep us safe everyday.
The First Responder Heritage Flag was created to honor all three of these groups -- each created with a single bar of color to signify their sacrifice in the line of duty: red for firefighters, blue for law enforcement, and green for EMT’s.
We also decided that the first flags of the series needed to be presented in tribute to those first responders most affected by the events 14 years ago on September 11th, 2001.
“These are the brave men and women that keep us safe at home,” says Heath Trigg, founder of The Heritage Flag Company. “We want to make sure that is never forgotten.”
Heath decided there would be no better way to honor the brave men and women and remember those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice than to physically present a flag to the 10 closest fire stations to Ground Zero ON 9/11/15. “We want our First Responders to know their sacrifices do not go unnoticed! This is going to be a very powerful day” says Heath.
Stay tuned for more updates about our journey on The Heritage Flag blog and Southern Pine Woodworking Facebook.
The First Responder Series will be available online today, September 11, 2015 at theheritageflag.com.
