Today, June 14, is Flag Day. When I was 12 years old I wrote an editorial piece for the Democrat and Chronicle about why everyone should fly an American flag. Today, it’s still one of the things I tell sellers to do most when they list their homes.
According to the PBS website, the colors of the flag have significant meaning:
Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor.
White symbolizes Purity and Innocence.
Blue represents Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice.
I would add that our flag demonstrates pride, history and unity.
I was thumbing through a copy of HGTV Magazine when I spotted this article:
It’s titled, “If You Only Do One Thing This Month: Hang a Flag for Fourth of July.” This article reminded me of the essay I wrote as a girl. It still holds true today.
Take pride in your homes. Take pride in this great country! Fly your flags. And forever in peace may they wave.
