PatriotIcon.org launched in September 2001, after the attacks on the World Trade Center occurred on September 11th. The site originally began as a new way for website owners express their patriotism and love for their country during difficult times with a patriotic favicon or "patriot icon". Americans were united and flying flags from their homes, places of work, and even their cars. PatriotIcon gave them a way to fly the flag online as well via their website or as an avatar for instant messaging or online forums. The site quickly garnered recognition from the Internet community and mainstream media for its unique and free downloads and resources.
Our website uses one of Patriotic Icon's favicon on our website.
