Crossing Under the Flag

The largest free-flying American flag in the world flies over the George Washington Bridge, in Fort Lee, N.J. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the flag flew on Labor Day under the arch of the New Jersey tower. The flag — 90 feet by 60 feet, with 5-foot wide stripes and 4-foot diameter stars — is meant to honor working men and women across the country. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)
