I feel particularly compelled to do this now - as Van Jones has indicated his wish to make 9/11 a 'national day of service' celebration or something ridiculous like that. Van Jones, a card carrying member of communist associated groups (STORM, CCDS), also apparently signed a 9/11 Truther petition several years ago. (I see that Van Jones has resigned??)
Anyhoo - enough about that little Marxist. See what follows - an image of the new 'Arms of Project 2996' and the background on it.

Herald (Designed by):
When I decided that Project2996 needed some sort of logo I wanted something a little more dignified than a standard graphic design. I’ve been a fan of heraldry for many years, and recently have become an student of the field, it seemed a natural fit.
The Zinnia is a flower with a very specific connection to 9/11. Zoe and Dana Falkenberg were two of the youngest victims, and their surviving family has asked that people plant Zinnias (Zoe’s favorite flower) as a remembrance. My better half remembered Zoe, during the very first year of 2,996, and we have several Zinnias in our front yard to remember Zoe and her little sister. The four stars above the zinnia represent the four planes and four crash sites of 9/11. The coloring scheme where the shiled is divided into two colors with the charges inverted is called counterchanging, and is used to represent the stark change our country and world went through.
