Flags for organizations have become a big deal in the past few years. Remember when our flag was respected, even revered above all others? I will link below to a website that helps us “brush up” on United States flag etiquette. (I am not advertising this business or making a commission) It’s a short, orderly read, just in time for Flag Day.
What images or memories do you consider when thinking about our flag? My two favorites are the statue of the soldiers at Iwo Jima planting Old Glory and the Stars and Stripes that flew over Fort McHenry when we won the War of 1812.
Although June 14 is our official Flag Day, why not fly Old Glory from now through Independence Day? It’s a symbol that Americans have in common. Who knows? You might inspire your neighbors or your kids’ friends to fly the Stars and Stripes.
What image or memory that comes to mind when you think of Old Glory?
