Each year to commemorate the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 the flag of the United States is flown at half-staff at the White House and on all U.S. government buildings and establishments throughout the world; flags are also encouraged to be displayed at half -staff on individual American homes.

The President also asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), on this day to mark the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
