Flag Quotes Fling out, fling out, with cheer and shout,
To all the winds Our Country's Banner!
Be every bar, and every star,
Displayed in full and glorious manner! ~ Abraham Coles, "The Microcosm and Other Poems" You can't appreciate home till you've left it, money till it's spent, your wife until she's joined a woman's club, nor Old Glory till you see it hanging on a broomstick on a shanty of a consul in a foreign town. ~ O. Henry 'Twas red with the blood of freemen
and white with the fear of the foe;
And the stars that fit in their courses
'gainst tyrants its symbols know. ~ Julia Ward Howe, "The Flag" The emblem of equal rights. It means free hands, free lips, self-government, and the sovereignty of the individual. ~ Robert Ingersoll A nation thrills, a nation bleeds,
A nation follows where it leads,
And every man is proud to yield
His life upon a crimson field
For Betsy's battle flag. ~ Minna Irving, "Betsy's Battle Flag" Each red stripe has blazoned forth
Gospels writ in blood;
Every star has sung the birth
Of some deathless good. ~ Lucy Larcom, "The Flag" The American Flag By Joseph Rodman Drake When freedom, from her mountain height
Unfurled her standard to the air,
She tore the azure robe of night
And set the stars of glory there.
She mingled with its gorgeous dyes
The milky baldric of the skies,
Then from his mansion in the sun
She called her eagle-bearer down
And gave into his mighty hand
The symbol of her chosen land. A person gets from a symbol the meaning he puts into it. ~ The United States Supreme Court Our flag is our national ensign, pure and simple, behold it! Listen to it! Every star has a tongue, every stripe is articulate. ~ Robert C. Winthrop
