A mural honoring the five Dallas police officers killed in an ambush last month was unveiled Sunday.
Artist Scott LoBaido created the mural called "The Thin Blue Line” that’s painted on a wall along 3rd Avenue near Fair Park.
It depicts a black and white American flag, with a thin blue stripe underneath the stars.
On top of the mural, there are five empty blue chairs that represent the fallen officers.
LoBaido told WFAA that he created the mural so that there is something permanent in the city where people can reflect and honor the brave officers who gave their life to protect the city of Dallas.
The mural dedication concluded Sunday when five blue balloons were released to honor the officers.
Tribute to the Dallas 5.
