Product Description
This is a 34 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Citizenship – The American Flag – Flag Etiquette. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

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.
