In the weeks leading up to Flag Day, June 14, a new set of social media graphics is available for you to promote.
Produced as part of the “Rally Around the Flag” campaign by the The American Legion and the Citizens Flag Alliance, the Voices of Our Flag series include individual, downloadable graphics that can be shared on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The flag quotes are from veterans, Legion leadership, presidents, Olympians and many others.
For example, one graphic includes this inspiring flag statement from Alvin Owsley, a World War I combat veteran and the fifth national commander of The American Legion:
“It is not so much the flag of our fathers as it is the flag of our children, and all of our children’s children yet unborn. It is the flag of tomorrow. It is the flag of yourself and of all your neighbors.”

Also, the Rally Around the Flag and Know Your Code series of social media graphics can still be downloaded and shared in the weeks heading into Flag Day. These graphics feature historical notes, fun facts and voices from history about Old Glory, and U.S. Flag Code facts.
