Most people don’t celebrate Flag Day. That may be because the flag means different things to different people- to some it is a sign of honor, to others a sign of freedom, and to children in our schools it is often just a symbol to which they pledge.
Yet in the pledge of allegiance, it isn’t just to the flag that they are pledging, but to “the Republic for which it stands”. Our flag means many things to many people, but it is foremost a sign of the Republic created by our Constitution, uniting the various independent American States across our continent. It is a sign of unity, Constitutional government, and a beacon of freedom to all mankind.
Happy Flag Day!
