Independence Day

President Eisenhower submitted the official standard for the flag that we use today in 1959. Today the flag consists of thirteen horizontal stripes, seven red alternating with 6 white. The stripes represent the original 13 colonies, the stars represent the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well: Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor, White symbolizes Purity and Innocence and Blue represents Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice. Show your American pride this Fourth of July and fly those flags!!! flag Eastgate Pools & Spas Home ]]>
