Patriot Day falls on September 11th and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the United States, September 11th, 2001. Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff at the White House and on all U.S. government buildings and establishments to honor and commemorate those lives lost.
Additionally, a moment of silence is observed to correspond with the attacks, beginning at 8:46AM Eastern Daylight Time, the time the first plane, American Airlines Flight 11, struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
