Biden Inaugural Committee Plans to Line National Mall With 200k American Flags to ‘Represent the American People’ Who Are Unable to Attend

The Biden Inaugural Committee announced today that in place of large crowds for the inauguration, the National Mall in Washington D.C. will be full of American flags, nearly 200,000 in varying sizes.

It was reported that the “Field of Flags … will represent the American people who are unable to travel to Washington, D.C.”

The committee urged people to “Donate to our partner charities to become a symbolic sponsor of our Field of Flags” and provided a link through ActBlue.

The committee also announced that #AmericaUnited would be the theme of the inauguration.

“At a time of unprecedented crisis & deep divisions, America United reflects the start of a new journey to restore the soul of America, bring the country together, and create a path to a brighter future,” read the tweet.

It was also reported that following his inauguration as the 46th president of the United States, Biden, accompanied by three former presidents, will lay a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery.

Biden will be joined by his new vice president, Kamala Harris, as well as former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton.
