Filling the National Mall grounds, the "Field of Flags" display in Washington, D.C. brought something different to the 46th presidential inauguration. And behind the display was none other than an Austin-based promotion company.


C-3 Concerts, the same company that usually puts on ACL each year, worked with the Presidential Inaugural Committee to design the display of 200,000 U.S. flags as part of their "America United" theme, according to KVUE.

The PIC announced earlier this month that "The Field of Flags" represents the "American people who were unable to travel to Washington, DC, and reflect(s) PIC's commitment to an inclusive and safe event that everyone can enjoy from their home."

The display also features 56 pillars of light meant to represent each United States state and territory.

The theme also includes a post-inaugural stop by the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery for a wreath-laying ceremony to honor the men and women in uniform who have died in combat.

C-3 concerts has previously worked on former President Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009 and 2013.
