The lower section of Memorial Wall (on the left, and closest to the crash site) contains 40 translucent panels, inscribed with the names of the 40 murdered heroes.

The date goes to the star on the Islamic flag. The date goes to the
To be technical about fact checking from source documents, just open up the site plan PDF, zoom in on the giant crescent, and print.
