With the upcoming 10th anniversary of 9/11 right around the corner I wanted to make everyone aware of a tribute image I think is one of the best I have seen to capture the memory of all of those lost on that day. Ok, I could be a little slighted because I designed it, but take a look and tell me what you think.
Of course what stands out is the silhouette of the twin towers in NYC, but there were more than just those that suffered and died on that day. The graphic’s shape is that of the Pentagon and of course the flight number at the bottom of the image remembers those who stopped the hijackers on the fourth plane and crashed it into a Pennsylvania field.
The colors all have a meaning too. The black skies that hung over those cities and crash site on that day and the days following. The red blood that was shed that day and days following. The grey symbolizes the sadness and grief we as a nation went through following the attacks and still do today. The white outline is the “silver lining” marking that we will and have emerged stronger from these attacks as a nation. The blue represents the country itself and that we stand together and will not be bullied by some cowards who think they can make us shrink in fear.
If you like this image as much as I do, you can order it at http://www.vision-strike-wear.com/Flight-UA-93-9-11-Twin-Towers-Decal_p_2614.html.
If you would like this on a shirt, email Todd at firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know. I am sure they will have made one very quickly.
