CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

People across Charleston are helping create a flag made of hand-prints. 

It's called the Flag for Hope, and it's traveled around the country since Memorial Day. 

This group has traveled to cities like Boston and New Orleans trying to spread the message of hope, unity, freedom and more. 

The first 100 visitors to show up at different locations where Unity Impressions goes, have the opportunity to leave their hand-print to create the American flag. 

The stop at the Charleston County Park & Recreation Headquarters is one of the multiple stops in the greater Charleston area for the 60 city tour. 

It averages out to about 300 actual spots across the country. 

In addition to this location, the group was over at Patriots Point and the Mother Emanuel AME church Tuesday. 

Members with Unity Impressions said the AME church is one example of what embodies the message behind the flag. 

The goal is to have 5,000 hand-prints encompassing the flag. 

The tour will wrap up on September 11 at the top of the Freedom Tower in New York City. 

The last 50 stars of the flag will be created by survivors and heroes from 9/11.
