A Brief History of the USA Flag
There are few symbols in American history greater than the American flag. It has been honored in song, fashion, famous speeches, etc. Some citizens of other countries look to the American flag as a long-standing symbol of freedom. While the meaning of the symbolism behind the American flag may vary from person to person, very few people know and appreciate the history of the US flag.
The history of the United States is quite literally woven into the very fabric of the American flag. Our country’s earliest banner makers can be considered part artist and part historian, given their ability to create a flag that has become the symbol for freedom around the world. At Gates, we provide a whole array of different United States flags. We carry different sizes and materials, but we also carry traditional flags, like Betsy Ross’s original design. So, the next time you see an American flag, give thanks to Betsy Ross and other banner makers who had the vision and talent to create this long lasting symbol of democracy.
