A Message of Unity
For this July 4th on Saturday we are sending out a picture of the various American Flags that have existed throughout the founding of our country. You can see how the stars and stripes have changed in number and design. These flags are a reminder that our country has changed a great deal in 244 years, and will continue to change as we progress forward.
How many American flags have there been?
Since the founding of the United States in 1776, there have been 27 different versions of the flag. Each new flag represented the addition of one or more states as the United States grew westward to fulfill what it believed to be its manifest destiny of expansion in North America.
We wish everyone a joyous July 4th celebration of these United States of America.
