Color Confusion: What Do the Colors of the American Flag Signify?

00    The colors “Red, White and Blue” trace back to the birth of the country and the Great Seal of the United States, rather than the birth of the flag. Red, white, and blue.  Everyone knows the colors, but have you ever wondered what the colors of the American flag actually represent?  Although the Marine Committee of the Second Continental Congress adopted a resolution that read the following, “Resolved, that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field representing a new constellation” nothing was ever said of the significance of the colors chosen. Many have confused the colors to signify something other than what our Founding Fathers intended.  Mike Buss, a flag expert with the American Legion believes the most obvious reason for the flag’s colors is that they were “simply taken from our mother country’s flag – the Union Jack of England.”  Others say that red represents the blood spilled by the patriots and those who fight to protect our country.  President Reagan put his own spin on the flag saying “The colors of our flag signify the qualities of the human spirit we Americans … Keep Reading...

All-American Flag Act Draws Support from Students Young and Old

00    Many students – including those at Florida State University and Palm Bay Elementary – are vocalizing their support for the All-American Flag Act which would ban government use of foreign made U.S. flags. According to the All-American Flag Act proposed on June 13, 2013, “any flags of the United States acquired for use by the federal government to be entirely manufactured in the United States from articles, materials, or supplies entirely grown, produced, or manufactured in the United States.” This bill was introduced to the Senate by Ritch Workman (R-Florida) and has been at a stand-still in the process.  This is not the first time a bill of this nature has been proposed.  A similar idea was brought to the attention of the US House of Representatives in 2011.  It had the intention of stopping the federal government from buying and displaying American flags made outside of the US. This time seems to be garnering more support from the citizens in which the flag represents, including Palm Bay Elementary students in Palm Bay, FL and Florida State University broadcasters. Video: Palm Bay Elementary All-American Flag Act Event On March 16, students of the Community Problem Solving Team showed their … Keep Reading...

Army Day

+20    The first Army Day was observed on May 1st, 1928. This was intended to stifle the Communist celebration of Workers’ Day-also on May 1st. However, in 1929 Army Day was changed from May 1st to April 6th- the anniversary of America’s entry of World War I. It was recognized as a national holiday in hopes to draw public attention to the country’s national defense. On April 4th, 1936, President Roosevelt proclaimed that Army Day is to be acknowledged by Congress and to be observed throughout the nation. Congress passed the resolution that recognizes April 6th as Army Day in March 1, 1937. “Our Army is a mighty arm of the tree of liberty. It is a living part of the American tradition, a tradition that goes back to Israel Putnam, who left his plow in a New England furrow to take up a gun and fight at Bunker Hill. In this tradition, American men of many ages have always left the pacific round of their usual occupations to fight in causes that were worth their lives-from Lexington to the Argonne.” –Franklin D. Roosevelt, Army Day Proclamation, 1942 Source: Defense.gov, Photo Source: Google Images

April Fools’ Flag Spoof

00    U.K.’s Mail Online delivers April Fools’ Day spoof regarding Great Britain’s Union Jack flag April Fools’ Day (sometimes referred to as All Fools’ Day) is an informal holiday celebrated on April 1st.  Its origin is unknown but there have been references made in literature dating back to 1392 in which Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales refers to April 1st as March 32nd. Since then, April 1st has been recognized and celebrated as a day of practical jokes.  Hoax stories are often found in the press and media on this day, including that of which U.K.’s Daily Mail Online published on April 31, 2014. The headline read as follows: “Scot-free! Union Jack gets a Yes vote makeover: Secret Government papers reveal how flag will look if Scotland votes for independence”  The paper claimed that if Scotland votes for independence, Great Britain’s proudest national symbol would change to reflect that by ditching the cross of St Andrew, a white X on a blue background. Mail Online went on to state that, “The dramatic change to our national flag – the first since 1801, when St Patrick’s cross was added – was accidentally revealed in confidential papers carried by a Government adviser in … Keep Reading...

Court Bans American Flag Shirts from Schools – Is This Unpatriotic?

00    A recent ruling by the courts bans American flag shirts from schools after a 2010 Cinco de Mayo incident. Is this decision an unpatriotic one? In San Francisco, a Federal court ruled in favor of high school officials who ordered students wearing American flag t-shirts to turn their garments inside out during a Mexican heritage celebration on Cinco de Mayo. The court says their decision is to keep students safe. What about freedom of expression for students wanting to show off their patriotism? The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last Thursday that school officials’ worries about racial violence outweighed freedom of expression rights of school students. Last May when the initial incident occurred at the Northern California school, faculty feared that the US flag shirts would anger Latino students celebrating Cinco de Mayo. That same school, Live Oak High School, has had a history of aggression and violent acts on that particular day in the past. Three Federal Judges were on the panel and the vote was unanimous. Part of the ruling said that “schools have wide latitude in curbing certain civil rights to ensure campus safety.” One of the judges who made the ruling also … Keep Reading...

Amazing ‘Long May She Wave’ Museum Exhibit Explores Old Glory

00    An amazing new museum exhibit explores Old Glory by taking a closer look at some very old American flags When you think of the United States, what comes to mind? Maybe, a bald eagle, the Statue of Liberty, or amber waves of gain? All those symbols might come up eventually, but an American Flag is one of (if not the) most prominent icon for the USA. The American flag is not only ubiquitous, but it’s also changed over time to adapt to a growing and changing country. The Frazier History Museum in Louisville, Kentucky decided to capture this unique and patriotic history in their newest exhibit dedicated to Old Glory, called Long May She Wave. “Historically, it’s the only flag, to my knowledge in the world, that has change built into it, in that the number of stars that it has depends on the number of states that it has and may have in the future,” says Hinricks. “As a designer, things that run variations on a theme are very important to what we’re always trying to solve in communications problems.” Kit Hinricks is the main graphic designer featured in the exhibit. Hinricks chose to focus his art … Keep Reading...
