GNYC Big Apple Series – Tribute in Light Sunset Reissue

In 2011, to mark the ten-year anniversary of 9/11, the Greater New York Councils issued the first Council Shoulder Patch in a series that would highlight and share the icons of New York City with our Scouting Family worldwide. By popular demand, we have released a special edition reissue of the original “Tribute in Light” patch with a sunset sky. The Tribute in Light was first presented on April 11, 2002, six months after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The Municipal Art Society of New York has presented it annually since. The majestic blue twin beams shine from dusk on September 11 through dawn the next day. The illuminated memorial reaches 4 miles into the sky and is visible within a sixty-mile radius on a clear night. The Tribute has become a world-renowned icon of remembrance, honoring those who were lost, as well as those who worked so hard to get our city through that terrible trial. Only 200 of the gold-mylar border were created.
