The largest flag recovered from Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center was displayed at the funeral of the Arizona girl killed in Saturday's shooting spree who was born that day.

Arizona shooting: Four ways you can kick the partisan habit

The Arizona Republic reports the 20-by-30-foot flag was the largest to have survived the collapse of the twin towers.

Nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green was born the day the towers fell and will be laid to rest Thursday in Tucson.

She and five others were killed Saturday in a shooting that wounded 13 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

A spokesman for the foundation that displays the flag around the country says it's with a New York firefighter who hopes to arrive Wednesday, depending on the storm in the Northeast.
