Thankyou for this patriotic tribute and printable symbol of our freedom. It is still difficult to find the flag to purchase; however, on a recent trip to Trinidad, Co., sponsored by my employer, the New Mexico VA Health Care System to speak to veterans about eligibilityfor VA health care, I found a few in Raton, NM, to give to my employees'. Upon presenting the flag to them, one employee asked me how much he owed me. My response was, " this flag has never been, nor will it ever be for sale". Warmest regards, Michael

I wish you would publish the fact that when flying our colors from a pole with cross tree AND gaff. The US Flag is flown from the gaff NOT the peak. There are may uneducated people who complain that in a maritime setting they see the US Flag flying from the gaff (which is proper) and the burgee or state flag flying from the peak. Physically the is higher than the US Flag, however, in the place of honor the gaff is higher. The American Legion publishes a phamphlet on the proper display of the US Flag and on the last poage show the many type of diplays from various poles. Check the maritime setting for the proper method. Thanks and I hope all reader understand the importance of this message.

This is a very interesting site and I thank you for the work that went into it. I learned things that were not taught in school. As for the controversy on what may or may not be the truth, I will always believe that Mrs. Ross did indeed make our first beautiful flag. Old Glory is STILL the most beautiful flag in all this world! God bless America!

I am really upset with myself to think it took this terrible, horrible, act on Sept. 11th, 2001 to wake me up and realize what the American Flag really stood for. It is really awful to think how we the American people just take things for granted. It is a shame that I waited this long to purchase an American Flag. I have always wanted to display one, but just kept putting it off and saying one day I will buy one. Now it has really hit home, and I, for the first time really realize how important it is to really understand what the American Flag really stands for. I am in my late 50's and all through school they tell you about the American Flag, but never really drill in your head what the American Flag REALLY stands for. This site for me was very important, because I have finally purchased an American Flag and want to display the American Flag the right way and treat the American Flag with the respect it really deserves. Thank you again for this web site.

Thank you so much for having this information available. The Flag is our source of Unity and a proud display of our freedom. When in time of tragedy, our Flag must be embraced and held high. Our Flag stands for what we have fought for then and what we are willing to fight for now. The American Flag is a universal symbol of freedom & prosperety. God Bless America!

Hi! In school we are doing a wax museum. Thats where we look up a persons name and we do a presintation in front of the class, and so I chose Betsy Ross.

I am honoring Mrs. Ross by chosing her as my historial figure costume for a Boy Scout party . What a better time to remember the person who gave us joy by creating a symbol of our freedom in the United States. As a den leader I want my boys to know America !
Wendy , Hebon, IN 46341 [09-27-2001]

Very nice and informative site. I remember as a child every morning saying the pledge of allegiance to our flag along with my other classmates and I remember how proud and emotional I felt as I said it. I remember how we never left our flag out in the rain or out over night, and how it was NEVER to be allowed to touch the ground and it was folded in a certain way. As I have viewed many flags over the past few years flying day and night or some flag poles not flying one at all and children no longer saying the pledge of allegiance to our flag at the beginning of their day I have wondered why, where is our pride of our flag that represented our country and the freedom that our ancestors fought and gave their lives for. Like God the flag has been deserted and forgotten, yet our great nation was founded on God and our freedom to worship and serve Him. Yet who have we turned to in this tragic time? The One who our nation was founded on-God. Now would be a good time to put Him and the flag back in our schools as well as our hearts. For this Americia we live in is still and always will be: One Nation Under GOD Bless America!

CH [09-26-2001]

I am so desparate since 9/11 i have been flying a flag that belonged to my grandfather who passed away when i was 12 years old, i am now 37 and it is the only thing that I have that belonged to him. I am afraid that the weather will damage it beyond repair. while i know that he would be proud to have his flag flying I dont want to lose it. I have been trying to get a flag to display but like everyone else unable to get my hands on even a small one. I will continue to fly pappys flag because i must as an american but would like to know where to go or can i buy one from you ? I have loved the flag all my life not just in a time of crisis i get goose bumps when i see her waving in the wind. Please help me sincerely laura

Robert S Martin , Lake Hughes Ca, 93532 [09-26-2001]

I am so extreamly happy to find other people who feel as proud od their country as i do! When i looked on line to find information on the pledge of allegiance all i got was negative comments on why it should not be aloud, until now. We live in a wonderful country and we should show our pride and be thankful for what we have. If those people with negative comments and attitudes dislike it here that much, why are they still here.Because we ARE one nation under God! We all need to keep our eye on that grand old flag because it represents us as a nation. And we are one darn fine nation at that!

Kellie Tipton , Vero Beach, FL USA [09-26-2001]

A former Girl Scout from the 70's, I learned and still do respect Old Glory. I am so thrilled to see so many Americans flying them today. It is a pity that the tragedy of September 11, 2001 had to happen to bring out American Patriotism. People are more warm than they were before this happened. It is also sad that someone would hate America so much to kill so many people at the WTC and Pentagon. They must not realize that the Statute of Liberty welcomes ALL races, including theirs and we are Americans made up of a melting pot of many cultures. That is what makes us BEAUTIFUL AND FREE. I said my peace. GOD BLESS AMERICA and help us to stop the terroism all over.
Norm , Illinois [09-26-2001]

Hope comes from the stars and stripes, Mrs. ross knew the right path to stitch and now we as American's must learn to stitch our lives up a bit. United we stand(strength), Divided we fall(bad stitch). As American's we wil hold the stitches together forever reguardless of our differneces. Long Live the Stras and Strips. God Bless America!!!

Would you please help, or what book could I purchase that would have this information?

tyler & trevor harring , poughkeepsie , new york [09-26-2001]

This flag which we honor and which we serve is an emblem of our unity, our power, our thought and purpose as a Nation. It has no other character, other than that which we give it, from generation to generation, the choices are ours. It floats in majestic silence above the hosts that execute those decisions, whether in peace or in war, and yet, through silence, it speaks to us of the past and the men and women who went before us and the records they wrote upon it President Wilson 1917 Flag Day Message

Betsy Ross is awesome

You say how to put the flag on a casket, but what is the reason behind never unfolding it after that? What can't you use the flag again?

I knew the flag was not to be flown at night but apparently a lot of my neighbors did not. I forwarded your web site to them.
Marjorie Smyth , Beaumont, CA [09-26-2001]

I was an elected official for 20 years. I have always been and will always be a very patriotic person - I love red, white and blue and the U. S. flag and anything else pertaining to the patriotic theme. People would come in to my office in the courthouse and ask if it were a gift shop and if anything was for sale. Of course I told them no - it was just my wonderful collection of my favorite things. I am proud to be an American and like to show it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

rubia carter [09-23-2001]

Having moved from Calif. 15 yrs. ago---packed away our flag we used to fly it daily there. Had the Desert Inn across from the main entrance to Disneyland. Many things we didn't bring out of storage. When this heinous thing happened in N.Y. it stirred something in us to display our beautiful flag. We dug and dug through boxes and found it. We would like to put it in a prominent place rather than the small pole that came with it. Can you recommend a good flag company that carries the additional equipment? We love the patriotism that has been exhibited by America during this catastrophic terrorist incident.

Thank you for having this site and making this site available. It is amazing how we all can take the symbol of this great nations heritage for granted. God Bless you and Gob Bless America in these times, our times for the greatest need for unity amongst us that I have experienced in my lifetime. I am originally from Baltimore, MD, birthplace of our "Star Spangled Banner". I have been trying desperately to get a printable copy of the flag, and your site has provided that. I will display it proudly and I am still willing to defend it in our time of need. Thank you so much and keep up the good work. Truly a very fine Website. Stephen Bees An American Patriot

Aline Morgan , Austin, Texas [09-23-2001]

We've been looking all over for a flag to fly at our house -- in symbolism of the "unitedness" we feel after the Sept 11 attack by terrorists. I started planning to sew a flag, yet hesitated because of the difficulty of cutting 5-pointed stars. We got into a discussion about Betsy Ross and thought it would be interesting to "look her up" and that's how we got to your great website! I'm still hesitant about sewing one, but since all flags are sold-out in 2 large neighboring counties, I may need to tackle the project. Besides, you show how to make the stars! THANKS!
Tricia Parker Hamelberg , California [09-23-2001]

Referred to this page by my son who thought I'd like the five-pointed star instructions! I did. I also printed out the flag. Lots of good info, keep up the good work.

I've printed your picture of Betsy Ross, the flag she made, and instructions for making the five pointed star. I'm going to try to make a Betsy Ross costume to wear to work on Halloween. I'd rather be a heroine than a spook! Making the flag will be the hardest part. Are 13 star colonial design flags still made?

I want to thank you for the flag display directions, being a Girl Scout leader in the past I remembered many things but how to hang a flag lengthwise thanks again. I wish more people would be concerned since going and coming from work I see so many hung wrong.

Thank you for having all this wonderful facts about Betsy Ross. It really helped find information for my daughters report she is doing on Betsy Ross. The fifth grade at Hackett school in Philly is doing reports on famous people and they have to act like the person and let everyone know of the their life and what they accomplished. Thank you

Thank you for making this historic and education information available. We are Boy Scout leaders and our 7 year old Den is spending this month learning the flag ceremony and the history and significance of our flag. We will be clicking on the virtual house tour for them at the den meeting and have broken your information up into small tidbits for them to digest. God Bless America and help us to carry on the spirit under which we were established. Karen and Ron White

Now more than ever, we need to remember what the flag stands for and show it the respect it deserves. Please observe all the rules of etiquette when displaying the flag. I hope Congress takes another look at laws allowing the burning of the flag in protest as "Freedom of Speech". United we stand ~ divided we fall. God Bless America!

Excellent web site. I have four uncles that gave their life for your beautiful country during WW2. I also have family from Maine to Florida as I am originally from Quebec. My grandfather was born in Gorham, New Hampshire. Now its time to show my neigbours to the south my appreciation for all that you stand for. You can bet that OLD GLORY will be flying at my home. Now is the time to stand together once again between nations and in our family tradition I stand with thee. Condolences and a heart felt sorrow to a nation that is akin to Canada. Jim

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people in New york the Twin Towers, Pennsylvania, & the Pentagon. This is such a tragedy. Thank you for this site. Wanted to see what Betsy Ross was wearing. Making a square for a quilting class that I'm taking an I thought I would make Betsy Ross and our American flag as a connector block. Thanks again.

Sorry to discover that the gift shop site is not available, I would appreciate a short note indicating that it is up and running. My need is to purchase a weatherproof American flag ASAP to display at my home. In these current turbulent times, I am anxious to display to all my pride in our great country and that I am behind it along with my many neighbors who have flags flying at their homes. Thank you.
