American Flag

When freedom, from her mountain height
Unfurled her standard to the air,
She tore the azure robe of night
And set the stars of glory there.
She mingled with its gorgeous dyes
The milky baldric of the skies,
Then from his mansion in the sun
She called her eagle-bearer down
And gave into his mighty hand
The symbol of her chosen land

The 50 stars represent the 50 states
and the 13 stripes represent the 13 original states.

Red signifies hardiness & valour
White signifies purity and innocence
Blue signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice
