TO EDUCATE REGARDING THE UNITED STATES FLAG AND TO HONOR THOSE WHO SERVE TO PROTECT ITS EXISTENCE.

Intertwined within the threads of red, white, and blue, lies a story of a country and its people. The American Flag not only acts as a symbol of our great nation’s freedom, but it is a representation of our country’s citizens and their history. Old Glory is the thread that binds us all together. The National Flag Foundation was founded to honor and respect our nation’s greatest symbol, the Flag of the United States of America. We bring awareness and remembrance to the American Flag’s history while representing the protocol for care, handling, and etiquette of our nation’s symbol.

HISTORY & EVOLUTION

When the United States Flag was first recognized by Congress in 1777, it did not have the familiar thirteen stripes and fifty stars that it does today. Although still red, white, and blue, the Flag had thirteen stars and stripes to represent the original thirteen colonies of the United States. Since the United States’ independence, the national Flag has been revised twenty-seven different times.
