Fly Her Proudly

Today is Flag Day.


The 50-star flag was ordered by President Eisenhower on August 21, 1959, and was adopted in July 1960. Our current U.S. flag has been in use for over 63 years and is the longest-used version of the flag.


The flag has become a powerful symbol of Americanism. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan gave his own interpretation of the meaning of the colors of our flag. He said that the colors of our flag signify the qualities of the human spirit we Americans cherish. Red is for courage and readiness to sacrifice. White is for pure intentions and high ideals. Blue is for vigilance and justice.
