2016 Waves of Flags 9/11 Memorial
Sep. 10, 2016: Waves of Flags 9/11 Memorial set up at Pepperdine University. The 2,977 flags will be on display until Sep. 26, 2016.

From the press release:

The display will commemorate the lives lost in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 with a stunning display of 2,977 full-size flags—2,887 American flags for each American life lost and 90 various international flags representing the home countries of those from abroad who died in the 9/11 attacks.

The installation became a Pepperdine tradition in 2008 when the College Republicans, inspired by a similar display, wanted to bring the tribute to the University. Now in its ninth year, Waves of Flags has become a significant service project for the Pepperdine community.

On Saturday, September 10, 2016, at 1 PM, a group of over 150 volunteers, including Pepperdine faculty, staff, students, and Malibu community members, will join together to install and raise the flags on Alumni Park.

Waves of Flags will be open to the public for viewing and visitation at the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Malibu Canyon Road from Sunday, September 11 to Monday, September 26, 2016.
