PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a bundle of 3 power point presentations on the American Flag. They include: The Creation of the American Flag, The American Flag - Flag Etiquette and The Pledge of Allegiance. The total number of slides in the presentations is 70. All 3 are highly animated and are "editable" so you can customize and update as you wish.

The flag contemporaneously known as "the Continental Colors" has historically been referred to as the first national flag. At the time of the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress would not legally adopt flags with "stars, white in a blue field" for another year. The first American flags were made of hemp.

The flag of the United States consisting of 13 stars and 13 white and red stripes is commissioned by Congress. Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” The Resolution did not specify any arrangement, number of points, nor orientation for the stars and the arrangement and appearance was up to the maker of the flag.

The stars were to be in a circular pattern, to symbolize the fact that, "no colony would be viewed above another.” The stripes were to represent each of the thirteen colonies. Betsy Ross is credited with being the original designer of the first American flag in 1776 and rarely referred to as the "Flag of '76" but as the "Betsy Ross Flag.” There are little or no primary sources to prove the Betsy Ross story. Others have claimed to have created the first flag as well.

The flag of the United States is one of the nation's most widely recognized symbols. Throughout the world, the American flag has been used in public discourse to refer to the United States. It is a powerful symbol of Americanism and is proudly flown on many occasions. Desecration of the flag is considered a public outrage, but remains protected as Freedom of Speech.

Although the Flag Code is U.S. federal law, there is no penalty for a private citizen or group failing to comply with the Flag Code and it is not widely enforced. Punitive enforcement would conflict with the First Amendment right to freedom of speech. Passage of the proposed Flag Desecration Amendment would overrule legal precedent that has been established.

The modern meaning of the flag was forged in December 1860, when Major Robert Anderson, moved the U.S. garrison from Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. This was the opening move of the Civil War, and the flag was used throughout the North to symbolize American nationalism and rejection of secession-ism. “Before that day, the flag had served mostly as a military ensign or a convenient marking of American territory, flown from forts, embassies, and ships, and displayed on special occasions like American Independence Day.
