Gwinnett County elementary school honors lives of Georgians lost to COVID-19 with flag display

People have been coming to Gwin Oaks Elementary School to stand in its parking lot in silence and remembrance for the last week.

They are coming to the school to look at a sea of 10,000 small white flags placed by the school’s students for a solemn purpose: to honor the lives of Georgians who have died from COVID-19. The flags were placed by the students earlier this month and are expected to stay up through the end of January.
