The stone pillar describes how a flag was erected by residents of Grand Isle County within 24 hours of the 9/11 attacks. Originally on a birch pole on a sand bar in the lake, it was moved first to higher ground, then to this permanent location on 9/11/2010. It is maintained by the Grand Isle VFW and the Vermont Department of Transportation. A Vermont Historic Marker describing the history of the Lake Champlain Islands is to the left.
