Help us tell 'The Story of Our Flag'

The American Legion Family is launching a multimedia tribute to Old Glory that will explore the flag’s meaning, the price paid for all it symbolizes, and the special place it occupies in our conscience and culture.

“Indivisible: The Story of Our Flag,” will be a collectible American Legion Centennial bookazine. Through illustrations and succinct text, it will tell the story of the U.S. flag from the American Revolution to the Global War on Terrorism. Voices, unique facts, historical anecdotes and more will team up with beautiful illustrations to tell that story.

Combining with the bookazine will be a web platform housed on www.legion.org/flag that will include videos, frequently asked questions, Flag code standards, stories of interest and other valuable resources. A mobile app also will be available as part of the campaign, and will feature information about the display of the flag, photos, videos and flag etiquette.

The American Legion Family wants the public to be a part of this tribute to our flag. Social media users also are encouraged to post photos of Old Glory, or share what the U.S. flag means to you, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #MyUSFlag. Those who want to participate also can pin photos of the flag to the Legion’s Pinterest page.
