The flag and pole are maintained by the Grand Isle VFW and the Vermont Department of Transportation.
Inscription: This flag is a memorial to those who lost their lives in the attacks of September 11, 2001. It was erected by Grand Isle County residents during the 24 hours following the event. Flying from a birch pole set on a sand bar in the lake, it was later moved to higher ground. On September 11, 2010, the flag was moved to this permanent site in a ceremony including fire fighters, police rescue personnel and ordinary citizens.
