The largest American flag in the world was draped from the George Washington Bridge in celebration of Labor Day.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey unfurled the flag Monday under the upper arch of the bridge's New Jersey tower.

It honors the hardworking men and women across the country.

The flag is 90 feet long by 60 feet wide, with stripes measuring about five feet wide and stars about four feet in diameter.
