Hi, cool website!!!!!!! Ziggy
ziggy man, None of your bussines [12-22-2001]

Can you tell me what the ball on top of a flag pole was originally designed for. I was recently told that it was made to house: a razor, to separate the fields; a match, to burn the flag; and a bullet, either to defend the flag or to terminate oneself after properly destroying the flag. I can not find any literature that supports this. Is it true? Thanks in advance for you help. Tomas Martinez

Hearing all the concerns about the proper display of the flag from several co-workers, I decided to look it up. Now I have good information to tell them. Also it is great to see everyone elses concerns and feelings about Sept. 11, 2001. I know I was devistated to hear about the incident and am proud to be an American and support President Bush's decisions full force.

Barbara Dessureau, West Hartford, CT [12-17-2001]

I would like to know the following information regarding the American Flag: 1) I would like to confirm that the red stripes (7) represent the blood that was and is shed for these United States. 2) I would like to know what the white stripes (6) represent? I think "purity" but purity of what? 3) I would to confirm that there are 13 stripes all together that represent the 13 original colonies. 4) I would like to know what the blue background (where the stars are) stands for. Why blue? 5) I know that the stars represent each state of the United States. I would like to know the order in which each stated was added. 6) I would like to know how to fold the American Flag and why it is folded that way? 7) I would like to know where to surrender damaged flags or the proper procedure for the desposal? Thank you. Thank you.

I luv the web page!
amanda, richmond va [12-12-2001]

I never realized how much pride I had in our country until the 9-11 attacks. The first thing I did after that event, after being shocked and mortified, was get ANGRY. The second thing I did was display a flag on my porch in a prominent location. What does that flag mean to me? It means men and women for centuries have given their lives to fight for our freedoms and liberties. It means our forefathers had guts and determination to make a good life for us all. It means a diverse culture living together in harmony and brotherhood. When I look at that flag, I thank God for those people. I thank God for America. That flag represents hope to a bruised nation and for our children. I love our flag!

Good info on Betsy-quite a gal! I was recently shocked at our town Christmas parade; when two of our grandchildren, who viewed a patriotic float, asked WHO is Betsy Ross?? I was amazed! One is a high school senior and the other a high school sophomore (and an honor student). Obviously, Betsy must not be mentioned in our grade or junior high school history! for shame, for shame. I used your website to download some information on her; our whole family is getting a copy in their Christmas stockings. I just can't imagine what is going on with our teachers and their American history curriculum. Jerry D.

I recently inherited two flags that were my grandfathers. One is a forty-two star flag, machine stitched, five foot by seven foot. The other is a forty star flag. Entirely hand sewn. It's larger-6'x8'. Both flags are in wonderfull condition. Beside smelling of his cedar chest. I've been unable to find any history on either one of these. Can you help? Thank you, Bruce

Katherine Tyler, Illinois [12-05-2001]

Your site is great! Useful and interesting info..I especially liked the story behind Betsy Ross. I have a question relating to flag sizes and configuration of the blue field. There doesn't seem to be any "official" size ratio of height to width. Based on commonly available sizes (and your chart ) the ratio varies from 1:1.5 to 1:1.9, with the most common being in the 1:1.5-1:1.6 range. The height of the blue field appears to be standard at the height of 7 stripes and in a survey I've taken the width appears to be equal to 9 stripes (a ratio of 1:1.3). I'd be interested in your comments. Once again your site is great and I'm going to spread the word about it to my friends and grandchildren. Henry Palmer

It's amazing how people lived back then, it was very interesting to see. I just found this site and I had to take the virtual tour - it brought back the recent memories of my visit. Thank you!
Robin, North Branch, MN [12-03-2001]

Many of us at work are wearing red, white & blue ribbons. There is a discussion of the order in which the ribbons should be arranged. Someone has said because we are at war the red should be on top, white in the middle and blue on the bottom. Is there such a protocol for the order in which the ribbons are arranged? Thank you

I Like the American flag very much because it reminds me of a long time you all have gone through just to keep Your patriotism alive.Like the September 11 tradgdey .
Brian Jaques , London England [12-01-2001]

Old Glory Thirteen bold stripes of red and white, flap and wave in the bright sunlight. Fifty stars stand tall and true, upon a field of the bluest blue. Across the seven seas from shore to shore, she has stood tall and proud before each door. At times tattered, torn and full of holes, she has brought new life to many souls. Each day she's up; each eve she's down, to keep the peace the world around. Hats are off and salutes are rendered, as long as she stands I'll not surrender. by: John V. Prater (SCPO) U.S. Navy (Retired)

The tradegy on Sept.11, 2001, really made an impact on me because on of my friends at schools father was in the Twin Towers in New York. I think he was on the 98 floor and the plane hit on the 92 floor. We didn't know for a long time if he died or if he is still alive.Finnaly, after 2 weeks our Middle School principal told us that my friends mother realized that he wasn't alive. It was really hard for our principal to tell us almost everone in my grade stated to cry. But we have got to remeber where my friend father hopefully goes next. I love the United States and I would do any thing to have everyone who died on September 11, 2001 still be alive. I just have to beleive in the United States and hopefully we will when agianst Pachestan.

My pathfinder leader was telling me that Betsy Ross didn't sew the first flag, she says this because they have no documentary proof. I think Betsy did sew the first flag, but I can't help wondering if what my leader tells me is true...

Sarah , Milford Center [11-22-2001]

I read a childhood biography of Betsy Ross when I was young. I loved reading about another needlewoman, since I was fast becoming one myself. Betsy became my hero and roll model. It always saddens me when I hear about historians trying to disprove her story. What reason could historians have for taking away one of the few important female roll models there are. I have become an avid quilter and needle artist and I believe that so many of these women who plied the needle have been silenced simply because, like Betsy they were not writer's of journals or diaries. They left only their legacy of needlework. Most of that is now crumbling to dust. Betsy is important to American History because of the legacy of her work that she left. She has inspired me to ply my own needles and to create my own legacy. I think of her often when I'm sewing or embroidering. I sometimes feel that she is looking over my shoulder and approving of what I am accomplishing, the same way her kindly grandmother looked over her shoulder and gently corrected her stitches when she was young. We need to keep her legacy alive. It's good that everyone knows the name of the woman who sewed the first flag. In spirit she has sewn every flag from that day to this. I know that her spirit is in every seamstresses hand who sews a flag today. And we in the quilting community have been sewing a lot of flags in the past two months. I feel her very close to me. Thank you for this web page, it has reminded me of so much. But why didn't you include the story of her winning an award for her sewing at the County Fair? I read a book long ago that described the sampler she appliqued. It had five pointed stars set in the pattern of the big and little dippers. Her sampler won first place over huge ornate quilts and weavings and she was very young when this happened. This seems to me to be a story that forshadows heroism. I read this story in a childs biography of Betsy Ross. Hope this helps out.

My 9 year old son who is in the 4th grade is doing a Social Studies Fair project on the American Flag. We were surfing the internet and came across this Website. We downloaded the picture of Betsy Ross and he will be using it on his project board. We got lots of good information and pictures to use in the project. We were having trouble finding the pine tree flag and this is the only place we could find it. Thanks for all the help. You have a great web site.

I fly my flag at all times since 9-11. I have a Grandson in the active reserves. He said he was ready to go back into service any time the would let him. Right now he is in college at Ft. Sam Houston College in Huntsfield, Texas. May god bless our country. It is time we all put our trust in him. He is in control. Jean Cranford

Dear Sir: I am a retired school teacher who also does historical character presentations. Since Sept.11 my adaptation of Betsy Ross telling the history of the flag has been presented to hundreds of school children. It is so important that our youth know the history of our flag as they wave it proudly. It has been an honor to bring to life the history of the flag with Betsy Ross story. Sincerely, Sondra Brady Torchia

You should not encourage people to use the flag as wallpaper as it is against flag code. Stars and stripes in variation is okay, but not the our nation's flag.
NORMAN LEWIS , Arcadia OH USA [11-08-2001]

I am a descendant. Thanks you for this web site. My ancestors were the Claypool/Claypoole's. Tha Flag has always been very important to me. One grandmother of mine, during WW2, often sewed flags onto pajamas, pillow cases, and outfits she made for her grandchildren.

I just wanted to thank you for the information listed in your site. Many of the people at my office have been flying small flags from their vehicles over the past month, and were not sure what proper disposal procedures were since they become unsuitable for display after that period of time. This has to not be an isolated question with all the flags now being displayed. When I called the Boy Scouts in Dallas, I was told they will do disposals via distribution to troops for ceremonial burnings on Boy Scout campouts, but only for field size flags. While you do not give explicit instructions, it appears they should simply be burned in a dignified manner. Thanks, Garry Swain
Garry Swain , Texas [11-07-2001]

I am a 5th grader. This is my first using your web-site. Beloit is a good city right now, because it's a small city. The reason I say this is because of the September 11, 2001 tragedy. So I hope there is no bombing at the U.S.A. I once heard a wise man say " We shall overcome". "God bless...... AMERICA"
