In 2002, Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Gail Loefgren proposed lining Gulf of Mexico Drive with nearly 3,000 flags in memory of each life lost in the attacks.

Since then, the flags have been placed every year on the anniversary of the attacks.

SCROLL DOWN to watch a video of the idea behind the tribute and how it is organized each year. The video features Mark Richardson, Longboat Key facilities and recreation manager, and Gail Loefgren, executive director of the Longboat Key Chamber of Commerce.
