President-Elect Joe Biden's Inauguration will undoubtedly look very different from inaugurations past, especially since the core areas of the National Mall are closed off to attendees. So in their place, Biden's inaugural team has placed 200,000 American flags.

"The #fieldofflags is illuminated by 56 pillars of light representing America’s states & territories," Brandon Chaderton, Human Resources Director for the Biden inaugural team tweeted.

The lack of attendees is not the only way this year's inauguration is different from years past. There are unprecedented closures blocking off a large portion of streets and bridges. Here is a full list.
