United States Flag Horses (Page 1 of 2)

Image: 911 Tribute The American Flag horse was a recurring theme for carvers and painters of Carousel figures. Besides making a statement of enthusiasm and patriotism for the parks and patrons, many carousel creators were recent immigrants, proudly embracing their new country.

This section is dedicated to the memory of those of all nationalities who died and in honor and those who survived and serve in the aftermath of 9/11/2001.
