Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state's official Sept. 11 Memorial Flag will be raised at the capitol and at the World Trade Center site for the tenth anniversary of the attacks.

Cuomo unveiled the flag that shows the Twin Towers in white against a dark-blue background. The symbolic image is surrounded by a five-sided figure representing the Pentagon and 40 yellow stars for the people who died when Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, Pa. It says "We Remember" below the image.

He said in a statement Tuesday that the flag is meant to serve as a "long-lasting symbol of our respect for those who were lost" and New Yorkers' resilience.

The National September 11 Memorial and Museum will sell replica flags to raise funds for the museum and educational programs.
