9/11 Memorial, Malaga Cove

The City started flying the flags in the Malaga Cove Triangle, where Palos Verdes Drives West and North meet, after the September 11, 2001 attacks.  The City flies two groups of flags: 9 flags in one group, 11 flags in the other group. These flags are flown in honor of the many Americans who died that day, including the first responders and the young men and women in the Armed Forces.

This memorial had an upgrade to the vegetation and layout based on a community project in 2018. A limited budget allowed for only a partial completion of the project.  This memorial and gateway icon is in need of further upgrades that will support the site into the future.
