American Flag made in China

                         The American Flag is presently being made in China

What a farce!!! Shame on the American company's sending our Treasured Flag over to China of all places to be made at pennies a flag then sending them back to America for us to Proudly Display.

The American Flag should be made in AMERICAN factory's, employed by AMERICAN  citizens, displayed by our AMERICAN GOVERMENT, AMERICAN business, & Homes & Schools.

All flags in Wal-mart are made in China. Shame on them!!! We as AMERICAN should REFUSE to buy anything that is not made in AMERICA

Sentimental writers and orators sometimes ascribe meanings to the colors in the flag. The practice is erroneous, as are statements on this subject attributed to George Washington and other founders of the country.

From the book "Our Flag" published in 1989 by the House of Representatives...

"On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress passed a resolution authorizing a committee to devise a seal for the United States of America. This mission, designed to reflect the Founding Fathers' beliefs, values, and sovereignty of the new Nation, did not become a reality until June 20, 1782. In heraldic devices, such as seals, each element has a specific meaning. Even colors have specific meanings. The colors red, white, and blue did not have meanings for The Stars and Stripes when it was adopted in 1777. However, the colors in the Great Seal did have specific meanings. Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, reporting to Congress on the Seal, stated:

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."
