The world's largest free-flying American flag will fly over the George Washington Bridge this weekend.
 
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the flag will fly on Labor Day under the upper arch of the bridge's New Jersey tower. It's meant to honor working men and women across the country.

 
The flag is 90 feet long by 60 feet wide, with stripes measuring about 5 feet wide and stars about 4 feet in diameter.
 
Anyone wishing to get a picture of the flag is urged to go to two spots in Fort Lee: The Lemoine Avenue overpass and the north area outlook of Fort Lee Historical Park on Hudson Terrace.
