On December 18, 2001, President Bush signed Public Law No: 107-89, designating September 11th as Patriot Day. Flag Code Sec. 6(d) designates Patriot Day as one where the US flag is to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sundown, not just until noon as is done on Memorial Day. In addition the people of the United States are asked to observe a moment of silence on Patriot Day in remembrance of the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks.
