Healing Fields of Honor

Each year since the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11th of 2001, massive displays of United States flags have flown on the Sandy City Promenade in honor of the nearly three thousand victims killed that day. Visitors have experienced a sense of healing when walking through the ordered rows of flags that have given the event a name, the Utah Healing Field® display. This original Healing Field® event inspired communities all around our nation to host Colonial Flag Foundation official flag display programs.

Now seventeen years later, though memories fade, the need for healing continues as more than 3,000 posted flags will again honor and remember those who died on that day when terrorists commandeered airliners which crashed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and on a grassy field in Pennsylvania.

This has transformed the memory of a horrific event into a memorial focusing on our nation’s resolve that the nation and the world will never forget the martyrs to terrorism. That the mature may remember and the young may learn.

The 17th Annual Utah Healing Field will—in addition to creating a magnificent panorama of red, white & blue—raise money to benefit Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) which rescues children enslaved by sex trafficking. In the four years since its inception, O.U.R. has rescued over 1,300 victims around the world and assisted in the arrest of 443 traffickers. Additionally, collaboration to provide aftercare for freed children to support them in the healing process. This gives the name Healing Field® a new layer of meaning.

The Utah Healing Field® display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.
