The American relationship with our nation's flag

The people of the United States have an attachment to the American flag, nicknamed: stars and stripes. This attachment can be traced to a few factors. Most school elementary children in the United States recite “The Pledge of Allegiance.”

The American flag is not folded like a towel or bed sheet in a square or rectangular shape. It is ceremoniously folded in a triangle in respect to the historical origins of the flag. The triangle is a representation of the tri-corner hat worn by the patriots in during America’s war of independence, the Revolutionary War.

The nation’s national anthem, “The Star Spangle Banner,” was written about the flag. .

We should fly our flag on, Memorial Day, Flag Day on June 14th, 4th of July (July 4th), Labor Day, and Veterans Day. Best of all, our flag should fly all year long.
