An aerial image of Fort McHenry with the students forming the Living Flag

On September 9, 2014, over 6,600 school students donned red, white, and blue to create the Star-Spangled Banner Living Flag at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic​ Shrine. Like their predecessors during the Centennial in 1914, students made history as part of the Star-Spangled Banner. Watch the time lapse video
