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.
About the Navy Flag
The United States Navy Flag went by a different name and different emblem for more than sixty years before being adopted as the official flag of the US Navy. This initial flag was named the Infantry Battalion flag and was introduced for use by naval landing forces. Sixty years after its inception, the Infantry Battalion flag was going to be replaced by the official flag of the U.S. Navy.
Two years earlier, the Navy Seal was introduced and was to be used on the official Navy flag as well. On April 24, 1959 by Presidential order, a flag truly representative of the Navy's operating forces at sea was born and remains the official flag of the United States Navy today.
America’s Navy is a force as relevant today as it’s been historically
significant for the last 234 years. The times may change. The threats may become
more obscure. The complex nature of 21st century life may make the demand for
such a presence less obvious. But now more than ever, the Navy is something to
be aware of. Something to be thankful for. Something to be proud of

"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
