HONOLULU — Students from the Honolulu Community College Sheet Metal and Plastics program and their professor, Danny Aiu, are planning to display two American flags they have fabricated in remembrance of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The flags will be on the campus mall by the end of the class session on Wednesday, Sept. 10, and will remain on display for the remainder of the week. This is the seventh year the flags have been displayed in honor of those who perished on 9/11.

Students in the sheet metal program constructed two flags in 2002a drab one depicting 9/11 and another one brighter and more defined, representing a strong, proud nation one year later. The two original flags are on permanent display in the Sheet Metal shop and two new flags have been created each subsequent year.

As has become tradition, at the conclusion of Honolulu CC‘s 9/11 remembrance week, the students will donate the metal flags to a non-profit organization that would commit to displaying the flags year round.

For more information or to express interest in obtaining one of the 2008 flags, contact instructor Danny Aiu at 845-9237 or danny@hcc.hawaii.edu.
