What Do the Stars, Stripes, and Colors of the American Flag Mean?
The Flag of the United States is blowing in the breeze
Sometimes it is called, “ Old Glory,”
Or the “Stars and Stripes”
The colors are Red, White, and Blue
And each color means something
Red means courage – Are we brave?
White means purity - Are we pure and good?
Blue means justice – Do we play fair?
Why stars and stripes?
Stars are considered a symbol of the heavens and the
Divined goal to which man has aspired from the beginning of time.
The Stripes are symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun.
The Stars represent the 50 states.

"The things that the flag stands for were created by the experiences of a great people. Everything that it stands for was written by their lives. The flag is the embodiment, not of sentiment, but of history." ~ Woodrow Wilson
