FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) – The largest free-flying American flag in the world is now flying over the George Washington Bridge in honor of Labor Day.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey unfurled the flag Monday under the upper arch of the bridge’s New Jersey tower. It’s meant to honor working men and women across the country.
The flag is 90 feet long by 60 feet wide, with stripes measuring about 5 feet wide and stars about 4 feet in diameter.
The Port Authority says the flag will be flown from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday.
