Field of Flags Installed at National Mall

Nearly 200,000 flags, including state and territory flags, will cover the entire Mall.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee has placed nearly 200,000 flags on the  National Mall ahead of the inauguration of Joe Biden. The flags signify the tens of thousands of people who won’t be able to attend this year’s ceremony.

The display was set up Sunday evening. The flag display is illuminated by 56 pillars of light, representing America’s states and territories.

“This inauguration marks a new chapter for the American people — one of healing, of unifying, of coming together, of an America united,” said Tony Allen, CEO of the Presidential Inaugural Committee. “The inaugural activities will reflect our shared values and serve as a reminder that we are stronger together than we are apart, just as our motto ‘E pluribus unum’ reminds us — out of many, one.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For a peaceful inaugural day in the nation’s capital and across the U.S.
  • For the National Parks Service officials as they oversee activities on the National Mall.
  • That God’s will would be accomplished in the United States.
