Flag Day

WE AS A NATION WILL HONOR THE AMERICAN FLAG ON "FLAG DAY"

The United States Flag Code stipulates that as the symbol of a living country, the flag is considered in itself a living thing. The original pledge was published in the September 8, 1892, issue of The Youth's Companion in Boston even though Flag Day goes back past 1777. Woodrow Wilson established Flag Day. On June 14th, 1949 this day of remembrance became the National Flag Day. The phrase "under God" was added to the pledge on June 14, 1954.

THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG IS A BEAUTIFUL DESCRIPTION OF WHAT THE FLAG MEANS TO EACH OF US

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

"The Lord foils the plans of the nations.....Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for his inheritance." - PSALMS 33:10-12 (NIV)
