Fly the flag

Dear Editor,
Just a reminder that Veterans Day is next Monday, November 11, so please fly the FLAG in honor of all who have fought for our freedom. The colors in the flag are interpreted as expressing the very character of our nation. The Continental Congress of 1777 declared that the white stars in a field of blue shall represent a “new constellation”. George Washington described the white in the Flag as symbolizing our desire for liberty-the land of the free. We say the red signifies the courage and sacrifices of the nation’s defenders, and the blue has been likened to the loyalty and unity of our citizens.
