The annual Field of Flags coming back to Albany Mall

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The annual Patriot Field of Flags will be on display outside the Albany Mall starting Saturday, September 6th.

The flags honor those who died in the 9-11 attacks and the first responders and troops who serve our country.

More than 600 flags will be on display for a week.

Organizers say there is a special meaning behind each flag.

"You know that someone paid the ultimate price for the life we live today," said Ray Humphrey, American Legion Post 335, Sylvester.

A memorial program will be held September 11th at 7 p-m.
