Symbolism of the Flag
The U.S. flag is the most widely used symbol of America, representing the many freedoms and rights guaranteed to us by the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Additionally, the flag symbolizes the patriotism, honor and courage of all of you, our U.S. Veterans and military personnel,
along with our individual liberties stated in the Declaration of Independence.
Many other powerful meanings that define America are represented in our flag as well.
“We take the stars from Heaven, the red from our mother country,
separating it by white stripes, thus showing that we have separated from her,
and the white stripes shall go down to posterity representing Liberty.”
– George Washington
