flag.

That  
forms the shape of a flame to commemorate
 the flames of the  
Twin Towers.

“This
metal remnant was taken from the remains of the Twin Towers, that imploded
on September 11th disaster. It was sent over to Israel by the City of New
York to be incorporated in this memorial. This metal piece, like the
entire monument, is a manifestation of the special relationship between
New York and Jerusalem.”

9/11.

It  
is the only memorial outside the U.S. that includes the names of all who
perished in the terrorist
attacks.
