Pepperdine University students and personnel and community volunteers placed American and international flags for the university’s annual “Waves of Flags” display that serves as a Sept. 11, 2001 remembrance at Alumni Park on Friday at the Malibu campus.
The university has planned for a short ceremony at 11 a.m. Sept. 12 in Alumni Park.
The massive display of flags — 2,977 representing lives lost in the attacks both Americans and international citizens — draws considerable attention at the corner of Malibu Canyon Road and Pacific Coast Highway.
The “Waves of Flags” tradition began in 2008 when university students were inspired by a similar 9/11 tribute. The flags are scheduled to be up until Sept. 23 on Alumni Park’s great lawn.
