PHOENIX (AP) - The largest flag recovered from Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center is on its way to Arizona to be displayed at the funeral of the girl killed in Saturday's shooting spree who was born that day.
The Arizona Republic reports the 20-by-30-foot flag was the largest to have survived the collapse of the twin towers.
Nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green was born the day the towers fell and will be laid to rest Thursday in Tucson.
She and five others were killed Saturday in a shooting that wounded 13 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
A spokesman for the foundation that displays the flag around the country says it's with a New York firefighter who hopes to arrive Wednesday, depending on the storm in the Northeast.
