History: Collapse Of The World Trade Center, September 11, 2001, Lower Manhattan, New York City, United States

A number of flags from other countries were also recovered from the World Trade Center site. A New Zealand flag was presented to the then Prime Minister of New Zealand, Helen Clark, by representatives of the New York City Fire Department. Two of the casualties were New Zealanders. Conservators mounted and framed the flag and it now hangs in the main stairwell of Parliament House, the main building of the New Zealand Parliament Complex. A Union flag of the United Kingdom was also recovered, and is now housed at the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester, England. The United Kingdom suffered the most casualties after the United States, with around 60 to 70 Britons killed during the attacks.
