(CNN NEWSOURCE) On Friday Florida Governor Rick Scott directed 49 Florida state flags to be placed in front of the Florida Historic Capitol in Tallahassee for 49 days in honor of those who lost their lives during the Orlando terror attack.

Under each flag displays the name, age and photo of every victim.

“The memory of this horrific tragedy will never be forgotten, as well as the legacies of each of the 49 victims. While we can never completely heal from the pain of such loss, we continue to be reminded of each life taken in Orlando and their individual impact on so many,” Gov. Scott said in a statement

Sunday will mark two weeks since a gunman opened fire inside of the Pulse night club in Orlando killing 49 and injuring 53.
