National Mall Covered With 200K Flags Ahead of Biden’s Inauguration

Inauguration Day will look different this year, but those who cannot attend the event in person are being honored in a unique way.

Ahead of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ inauguration on Wednesday, the “Field of Flags” public art display of nearly 200,000 flags were placed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

The flags represent the tens of thousands of people who are not able to attend the inauguration in person. There are flags of all the U.S. states and territories. There are also 56 pillars of light at the display.

The inauguration will be largely virtual amid the coronavirus pandemic and following the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6. The theme is “America United.” The display on the Mall was illuminated on Sunday evening.

Presidential Inaugural Committee CEO Dr. Tony Allen previously said in a statement, “This inauguration marks a new chapter for the American people — one of healing, of unifying, of coming together, of an America united.”

“It is time to turn the page on this era of division,” he added. “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.”

There will also be a wreath laying ceremony at the Arlington National Cemetery after the inaugural ceremonies to honor “our men and women in uniform who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our common values,” as the Presidential Inaugural Committee writes on its website. Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton, along with their wives, will also attend.

      1. But, but, general confusion, you apparently forget your half black Messiah, Obama, spent between 160 and 170 Million in 2009. So looks to me like Trump saved us between 53 and 63 Million.

        1. I didn’t forget anything, Peggy. Notice that I didn’t approve of any amount by ANY previous president. However, maybe YOU should look yourself into the corruption that happened regarding His Majesty’s coronation.

  1. Good to see former presidents of the left and right attend and remind us of our common values and that there is no place for white supremacy and childish belief in in fabricated lies. Trump will slink out the backdoor of history in disgrace and be remembered as foul stain on Democracy.

  2. nice to see some one has a heck of a lot of money to waste…. opulence=biden
    now that I remember when obammy was elected he thought he was a rock star too…
    I guess this is bidens way of saying… move over obammy and let me show you how to do it…

    1. I am confused, dixter.

      When King Donald The Loser spent $107 million on HIS royal inauguration, did you whine and moan about that, at the time? You weren’t here, then, but dollars to donuts, I think we all know the answer to THAT question, right?

      Don’t forget either, dixter, the 2017 inauguration was the most corrupt inauguration that we have ever had, up to that time. I mean, before then, MOST people had never even heard of corruption being associated with an inauguration. This country is so corrupt that even the ceremony and its associated politics are corrupted!

      So, dixter, guess how much Joke Biden’s inauguration will cost, INCLUDING the 200k flags.

        1. If I do that research FOR you, Charles, will the new information upset you so much that you will finally accept reality and stop supporting the last narcissistic, dangerous, incompetent, fascistic, wannabe dictator that the nation just legitimately voted out of office? Yes or no, Charles?

          You do realize that this is all public information, right, Charles? All you have to do is go digging where you are afraid of going. Too scared to find the truth by ourself?

  3. All these flags…. not a one will be The Stars and Stripes…. way to go, you ole codger.

    1. “Stunning pictures of the National Mall set up for inauguration with flags representing Americans who can’t attend in person” quoted tweet, article

      So, in effect, the 200k flags represent you and me and all other Americans as if we are there.

          1. GC don’t be so naive they put the flags there because they know it would be impossible to vet so many people that would show up to cause a disruption to their party…. its a cop out…. so much easier to just fill the field with flags and use the virus as an excuse for their incompetence and actually have human beings there… they locked down the area and surrounded it with army boy/girls… do you really think they would let common citizens to show up and possibly them getting into a scuffle with the army…. yea sure…. that would be a great idea… lets just set up a big fight for the world to witness…. come on now don’t be so stupid

  4. So when are you going to pass along the information of “stronger together” to antifa and blm? Oh, forgot. The dem/leftist/prog/socialist/borderline communist don’t think antifa and bllm need to participate in this thinking because all their rioting, looting and burning have all been “peaceful protests”.
    lmao
