Brooklyn firefighters George Johnson, left, Dan McWilliams, center, and Billy Eisengrein, right, raise a flag at the World Trade Center in New York on Sept. 11, 2001. The photo has appeared on T-shirts, buttons and Christmas ornaments. It hangs at firehouses across the nation. A mural of it was painted on the walls of a Louisiana prison. And copies were left as a calling card in Afghanistan by U.S. commandos. Many consider it this century's Iwo Jima image, recalling the famous 1945 Associated Press photograph of six American fighting men struggling to raise the flag on Mount Suribachi during World War II.
