Thanks for sharing. I remember learning about our flag in elementry school. Your flag makes me think of the turkish flag which has an interesting story too.

I am sure every flag is made of different stories, we, as a citizen of our Nation is good to know the meanings behind the flag! thanks for you stopping by, I am glad we share the same view, cheers!

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.

wow! thanks for sharing such informative details about your national flag, I believe I know where are you from, a land with Democracy and Human-right. 🙂

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.
