Fly Your Flag

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.
