American flagThe flag of a nation or an organization is not just a piece of cloth, it is something much more than that. The flag of the United States of America represents the nation, its ideals, hopes and dreams. Many people have fought and died for the flag, not just the cloth, but those ideals, hopes and dreams that it represents. The flag represents all Americans, past, present, and future and those who died both military and civilian, so that this nation would remain .......the land of the free.
