Flag Day was once called the “runty stepchild among American national holidays” by the New York Times. While it may not be the grandest of our country’s celebrations, it’s impossible to talk about Flag Day without briefly discussing why Old Glory was originally created, and what it means today.

We may know the flag as a strong symbol of patriotism, but at the time of the American Revolution, it had a much more pragmatic purpose: It existed to distinguish the American military forces from the British.

  1. I proudly fly my 3x5 "Old Glory" EVERY DAY it doesn't rain. I got a real pristine beauty stashed away with instructions to my daughter to inter it with me when I go toes-up.
