Need a good flag ceremony? We did for our Blue & Gold Banquet this
week. I have 3 Webelos who only need their flag ceremony to finish
their Webelos badge requirements. I asked them if they would do a flag
ceremony for our Blue & Gold Banquet, and they all agreed.
We found a banner that had been made by (I assume) some previous Webelos
in our Pack. It had 8 flags of the United States in chronological order
painted on it, with labels indicating the 'name' and year of each flag.
We then set out to find the histories on each flag.
I don't remember how I stumbled upon this site, but everything that you
ever wanted to know about the American Flag, and its history can be
The boys split up the text that accompanied each page found on the web,
and gave a couple of seconds history on each flag. It went wonderfully.
I just thought that this page would be a great stop for Scouts on the
web, or for anyone looking for American Flag stuff, and to furthur thank
Duane Streufert, who operates that site.
