5) Do you know your Flag well?

Posted on

Our National Flag consists of two equal horizontal sections, the red above white.  On the left canton is a white crescent moon beside five white stars within a circle. 
Each feature has its own distinctive meaning and significance:
Red symbolizes Universal Brotherhood and Equality of man;
White signifies pervading and everlasting purity and virtue;
The Crescent Moon represents a young nation on the ascendant;
and the five stars stand for the nation’s ideals of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.
It’s significant to know the meaning of our National Flag, we will grow to understand how much hardship, country warriors fight for the flagpole and make it stands upright under the blue sky.

Personally, I favor our flag standing firmly on the ground, blowing in the wind and facing the storm fearlessly.

A National flag belongs to every nation and it is uphold by each individual hand in hand.

    What a fantastic blog Sydney, here is my flag’s information, (I bet you can guess where I’m from). Thanks for sharing your flag’s story.
    •The color red in the American seal and transferred to the American flag stands for valor and hardiness.
    •The color white in the American seal and transferred to the American flag stands for purity
    •The color blue in the American seal and transferred to the American flag is the color of the Chief and stands for perseverance, justice and vigilance.
    The stars represent the 50 states. The flag originally contained 13 stars, one for each state in the union. There is also a religious factor to the color and emblems on the flag but offhand I can’t remember exactly or I would share that also.

        You are absolutely right Sydney, the land of democracy and human rights, but having so much freedom gets us in trouble sometimes….especially our government sometimes they feel the need to control the whole world and forget that our beliefs may not necessarily be the beliefs of other countries and sometimes our government gets so wrapped up in foreign affairs that they totally over the problems with the people living a block from the white house. Wow, I’m sounding wayyy too political, sorry for the rant.
