US Flag info:
Found this linked to Barb Stephens' Pack 114 web site (looking good, Barb!).
This has probably appeared here before, but we get new folks daily, and Flag
Day is coming June 14th, and Memorial Day, too, later this month. I was so
impressed with what this site had to offer!. Patriotic writings, songs,
poetry, FAQs, how-tos on flag folding, etc. As a Wolf leader I could have
really used this info earlier this year!
Probably the most interesting is the symbolism for the stripes, stars, why
it is folded in a triangle, etc.
Some incredibly moving writings, too at
"The Voice of Patriotism In Writing"
You can also order a flag that has flown over the US capital, and even
request a certain day. The prices for this are reasonable, too.
So go get it, folks, and thanks, Barb for listing it on your site!
