FORT LEE, New Jersey (AP) — The largest free-flying U.S. flag in the world is on display over a New York City bridge for Labor Day.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey unfurled the flag Monday on the George Washington Bridge. It’s meant to honor working men and women.

The flag is 90 feet (27 meters) long by 60 feet (18 meters) wide.

The Port Authority says the flag will come down Monday evening.
