Northglenn Veterans Memorial

The Northglenn Veterans Memorial was dedicated in September 2003, and sits in between City Hall and the Northglenn Recreation Center. Created by Hai Ying Wu, the sculpture is a bronze replica of the United States flag that stands approximately 23 feet tall. Ten figures emerge from the flag wearing uniforms that represent the many conflicts in American history.
