The Flag Of The USA   Leave a comment

US FlagsTomorrow, July 4th, is the 54th birthday of the 50-star American flag.

This flag design, with 13 stripes and a star for each state in the Union, was adopted in 1818.

If you’re doing prep for a Bar-B-Q or other suitable holiday celebration, take a few minutes to brush up on your flag trivia.

And, please, treat the flag with proper respect! It is a symbol of what America stands for, and deserves to be treated as such.
