Those beautiful red and white broad stripes and the 50 white stars on a blue background are about to celebrate a birthday. Our flag, the American flag, the symbol of our great country, was adopted by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. The resolution passed by our founding fathers described our flag with the following words; "White signifies purity and innocence; red hardiness and valor; blue signifies vigilance, perseverance and Justice".
The James Waldrop Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution reminds everyone to fly your flag on June 14. Regent Betty Harrah remarked, "When I see the flag, it reminds me of the sacrifices made by our fore fathers and their families in fighting for our freedoms and all those since who have fought to keep our freedoms. The flag makes me proud to be an American."
The James Waldrop Chapter DAR is chartered in Fayetteville, GA.
