More than 500 American flags are flying on the Wilmington Riverfront again.

For the second year in a row, the Rotary Club of Wilmington has installed the flags to honor the U.S. military, first responders and front-line workers in the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, the flags will be up on Sept. 11, the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks of the World Trade Center, Pentagon and the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The flags are scheduled to stay up through Sept. 20.
