Following the attacks on the United States of Sept. 11, 2001, Congress and President George Bush declared Sept. 11 as Patriot Day.

This date is recognized by flying the American flag at half mast on all U.S. government buildings, and all Americans are encouraged to display the flag at their homes and workplaces.
