Language, color, space, symbols </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bold and bright colors (red white and blue) bring attractions to the American people since it is American Colors. Uncle Sam is seen as a god with his strong arms along with the lighting bolt at his side—like Zeus. The flying eagle symbolizes the country of America. The eagle has a fierce face and is flying down ready to attack its prey. Just like America is ready to attack in the War. Sun and the stars represents “anytime”—meaning they can fight at any point day or night. </li></ul></ul>
