STILL A GRAND OLD FLAG

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Timely hints from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment? Yes, very much so as July Fourth looms. USA.gov — a wide-rang­ing com­pen­dium of in­for­ma­tion about the gov­ern­ment and its work­ings — of­fers a page ded­i­cated to the Amer­i­can flag and its pro­to­col.

“The U.S. flag stands for our na­tion and the shared his­tory, pride, prin­ci­ples and com­mit­ment of its peo­ple. When we prop­erly dis­play this pow­er­ful sym­bol, we sig­nal our re­spect for ev­ery­thing it rep­re­sents,” ad­vises a help­ful in­fo­graphic based on the U.S. Flag Code.

There are his­toric de­tails which should be re­vis­ited from time to time. “The colors on the flag rep­re­sent: Red: valor and brav­ery; White: pu­rity and in­no­cence; Blue: vig­i­lance, per­se­ver­ance, and jus­tice,” the site says.
