The Ohio Flags of Honor memorial travels all over the state and displays 10-foot tall “flags of honor” with the name of each military man and woman written on it who has died since 9/11, and hundreds more “tribute flags” that are sponsored by families, individuals, businesses and veterans organizations.

This year’s display is sponsored by the Blue Knights KU VIII.

The display will remain near the Ironton Hills Plaza until after the Ironton-Lawrence County Memorial Day Parade.
