  • What is a Symbol? meaning sign or emblem Something that represents something else by association, resemblance, or convention, especially amaterial object used to represent something invisible.
  • Click Audio to start SlideThe United States has many Symbols that you may be familiar with for example: Betsy Ross Seamstress of the Original Flag Francis Hopkinson, signer of Declaration of Independence and Designer of the  American Flag and Great Seal of the United States Our National Bird is Bald Eagle
  • We have a national Flower, the Rose This is our national Motto: - “In God We trust”. Have you ever thought about our  National Tree?…. Yes we have one. It is the Oak. By any standard, the oak is a mighty  tree. It is significant in sheer numbers alone, with oak trees being the most  widespread hardwoods in the temperate zone of the northern hemisphere.
  • ObverseThe design on the obverse (or front) of the seal is the coat of arms of the United States. The shield, though sometimes drawn incorrectly, has two main differences from the American flag. First, it has no stars on the blue chief (though other arms based on it do: the chief of the arms of the United States Senate may show 13 or 50, and the shield of the 9/11 Commission has, sometimes, 50 mullets on the chief). Second, unlike the American flag, the outermost stripes are white, not red; so as not to violate the heraldic rule of tincture.ReverseThe 1782 resolution adopting the seal blazons the image on the reverse as "A pyramid unfinished. In the zenith an eye in a triangle, surrounded by a glory, proper." The pyramid is conventionally shown as consisting of 13 layers to refer to the 13 original states. The adopting resolution provides that it is inscribed on its base with the date MDCCLXXVI (1776) in Roman numerals. Where the top of the pyramid should be, the Eye of Providence watches over it. Two mottos appear: Annuit cœptis signifies that Providence has "approved of (our) undertakings."[2] Novus ordo seclorum, freely taken from Virgil,[3] is Latin for "a new order of the ages."[4] The reverse has never been cut (as a seal) but appears, for example, on the back of the one-dollar bill.
  • The Great Seal of the United States is used to authenticate certain documents issued by the United States federal government. The phrase is used both for the physical seal itself (which is kept by the United States Secretary of State), and more generally for the design impressed upon it. The Great Seal was first used publicly in 1782.The obverse of the great seal is used as the national coat of arms of the United States.[1] It is officially used on documents such as United States passports, military insignia, embassy placards, and various flags. As a coat of arms, the design has official colors; the physical Great Seal itself, as affixed to paper, is monochrome.Since 1935, both sides of the Great Seal have appeared on the reverse of the one-dollar bill. The Seal of the President of the United States is directly based on the Great Seal, and its elements are used in numerous government agency and state seals.ReverseThe 1782 resolution adopting the seal blazons the image on the reverse as "A pyramid unfinished. In the zenith an eye in a triangle, surrounded by a glory, proper." The pyramid is conventionally shown as consisting of 13 layers to refer to the 13 original states. The adopting resolution provides that it is inscribed on its base with the date MDCCLXXVI (1776) in Roman numerals. Where the top of the pyramid should be, the Eye of Providence watches over it. Two mottos appear: Annuit cœptis signifies that Providence has "approved of (our) undertakings."[2] Novus ordo seclorum, freely taken from Virgil,[3] is Latin for "a new order of the ages."[4] The reverse has never been cut (as a seal) but appears, for example, on the back of the one-dollar bill.
  • Armiger President of the United States Adopted Unknown (current definition from 1945) Crest Behind and above the eagle a radiating glory Or, on which appears an arc of thirteen cloud puffs proper, and a constellation of thirteen mullets argent Escutcheon Paleways of thirteen pieces argent and gules, a chief azure Supporters An American eagle displayed holding in his dexter talon an olive branch and in his sinister a bundle of thirteen arrows all proper, and in his beak a white scroll inscribed E PLURIBUS UNUM sable Motto E pluribus unum Other elements The whole surrounded by white stars arranged in the form of an annulet with one point of each star outward on the imaginary radiating center lines, the number of stars conforming to the number of stars in the union of the Flag of the United States Use On documents from the president to Congress, and as a symbol on presidential vehicles, podiums, and other places
  • AMERICA'S FLAG TIMELINEJANUARY 1, 1776 THE FLAG IS DISPLAYED ON PROSPECT HILL WITH 13 STRIPES BUT THE BRITISH UNION JACK IS WHERE THE STARS ARE TODAY. 1776 IT IS REPORTED THAT BETSY ROSS HAS SEWN THE FIRST AMERICAN FLAG WITH 13 STARS AND STRIPES. THERE IS DOUBT TODAY THAT BETSY DID SEW THE FIRST FLAG. IT IS ATRIBUTED TO FRANCIS HOPKINS, A SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE WHO SUBMITTED A BILL TO CONGRESS FOR HIS SERVICES TO DESIGN THE FLAG, CONGRESS NEVER PAID HIM. JUNE 14TH 1777 ADOPTS THE FLAG "RESOLVED THAT THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES BE THIRTEEN STRIPES, ALTERNATE RED AND WHITE, THAT THE UNION BE THIRTEENSTARS WHITE IN A FIELD OF BLUE, REPRESENTING A NEW CONSTELLATION." 1795 THE FLAG IS MADE WITH 15 STRIPES AND 15 STARS 1814 FRANCIS SCOTT KEY WRITES THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER 1861 THE CONFEDERATE STATES SUCCEED FROM THE UNION AND ADOPT THEIR OWN FLAG 1892 THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE IS PUBLISHED 1912 PRESIDENT TAFT ODERS THE FLAG TO BE MADE IN EXACT PROPORTION WITH THE STARS ALL POINTING UP WITH EVEN ROWS 1931 CONGRESS MAKES THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER THE NATIONAL ANTHEM 1949 PRESIDENT ORDERS FLAG DAY (JUNE 14TH) 1959 PRESIDENT EISENHOWER ORDERS THE STARS ON THE FLAG TO BE EVEN ROWS 1969 THE FLAG IS PLACED ON THE MOON
  • The First Official United States Flag: This 13-Star Flag became the Official United States Flag on June14th, 1777 and is the result of the congressional action that took place on that date. Much evidence exists pointing to Congressman Francis Hopkinson as the person responsible for its design.The only President to serve under this flag was George Washington (1789-1797). This Flag was to last for a period of 18 years.Each star and stripe represented a Colony of which there were thirteen, united nearly one year earlier by the Declaration of Independence. The thirteen Colonies are listed below with the date that each ratified the Constitution and became a State.
  • The Star Spangled Banner: This Flag became the Official United States Flag on May 1st,1795. Two stars were added for the admission of Vermont (the 14th State on March 4th, 1791) and Kentucky (the 15th State on June 1st, 1792, and was to last for 23 years. The five Presidents who served under this flag were; George Washington (1789-1797), John Adams (1797-1801), Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809), James Madison (1809-1817), and James Monroe (1817-1825).The 15-star, 15-stripe flag was authorized by the Flag Act of January 13, 1794, adding 2 stripes and 2 Stars. The regulation went into effect on May 1, 1795. This flag was the only U.S. Flag to have more than 13 stripes. It was immortalized by Francis Scott Key during the bombardment of Fort McHenry, Sept 13, 1814. The image above is representative of the actual flag that flew over Fort McHenry on that day and which is now preserved in the Smithsonian Museum. You can notice the "tilt" in some of the stars just as in the original Star Spangled Banner.Where the original Star Spangled Banner went...1814The battle occurred, and the flag won its glory. Armistead was promoted to Lt. Colonel by Madison. Armistead died in service on April 25, 1818. He acquired the flag sometime before that date, but at this point it is unknown how.
  • The 30-Star Flag: This Flag became the Official United States Flag on July 4th, 1848. A star was added for the admission of Wisconsin (May 29th, 1848) and was to last for 3 years. The three Presidents to serve under this flag were; James Polk (1845-1849), Zachary Taylor (1849-1850),and Millard Fillmore (1850-1853).
  • The 35-Star Flag: This Flag became the Official United States Flag on July 4th, 1863. A star was added for the admission of West Virginia (June 20th, 1863) and was to last for 2 years. The two Presidents to serve under this flag were Abraham Lincoln (1861-1865) and Andrew Johnson (1865-1869).
  • 49-Star Flag: On January 3rd,1959 Alaska was formally granted statehood placing the 49th star on our Flag.Executive Order of President Eisenhower dated January 3, 1959 - provided for the arrangement of the stars in seven rows of seven stars each, staggered horizontally and vertically.The first 49-star flag was made in the Army Quartermaster Depot at Philadelphia, and was used in the White House ceremony when President Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961) signed the proclamation admitting Alaska to the Union. Subsequently, this flag was carried to Philadelphia by Senator Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania, who gave it to the mayor of Philadelphia to raise over Independence Hall on July 4th, 1959. After these ceremonies Scott gave the flag to his colleague, Senator Earnest Gruening of Alaska, who, in turn, delivered it to Governor William A. Eagan to be flown over the state capitol at Juneau. This flag was later given to the Alaskan State Mueseum for preservation.The 49-Star flag was official for only one year, until July 4, 1960, when Hawaii achieved its Statehood and the 50-Star flag was born. President Eisenhower was the only President to serve under this flag.
  • 50-Star Flag: Executive Order of President Eisenhower dated August 21, 1959 - provided for the arrangement of the stars in nine rows of stars staggered horizon tally and eleven rows of stars staggered vertically. This is the current flag of the United States. Hawaii was admitted as the 50th state on August 21st, 1959. The 27th flag of the United States became the official flag on July 4th, 1960. Nine presidents have served under this flag; Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961), John F. Kennedy (1961-1963), Lyndon B. Johnson (1963-1969), Richard M. Nixon (1969-1974), Gerald R. Ford (1974-1977), Jimmy Carter (1977-1981), Ronald W. Reagan (1981-1989), George Bush (1989-1993), William J. Clinton (1993-2001) and George W. Bush (2001-present)*.* Bush is only the fourth President to lose the popular vote but win the Presidency by means of the Electoral College. Andrew Jackson and Grover Cleveland suffered the same setback as Al Gore, but went on to win in a later election. Samuel Tilden, the people's choice in 1876, is the only member of this elite group who shunned a comeback. History will show to which group Al Gore will belong, having won the election by some half million votes but losing in the Electoral College.
  • Advance TechnologyOpening horizons
  • Draw an Image and provide justification
  • The United States Army Institute of Heraldry has prepared designs for flags with up to 56 stars, should additional states accede, using a similar staggered star arrangement.[citation needed] There are political movements supporting statehood in Puerto Rico (by the New Progressive Party of Puerto Rico) and the District of Columbia, among other areas.
  • The military retreat ceremony serves a twofold purpose. It signals the end of the official duty day and serves as a ceremony for paying respect to the flag.

This flag is the symbol that represents one of the most outstanding countries in the entire world. Sharing a vast history, USA flag is something that every American must have and respect. Take a glimpse of this national symbol’s vast history: For the first time USA flag had appeared on the George Washington’s headquarters on Prospect Hill at January 1-st 1776 when a siege of Boston was being planned. The Union Flag represented thirteen red and white stripes and a British Union Jack positioned on the canton. The first appearance of the USA flag is considered to be on May 1776 when Betsy Ross sewed the first version of the American flag. 14 June, 1777 represented an important day in the history of American nation, at Continental Congress the First Flag Act was signed. It was concluded that the design of American nation’s flag will be consisting of thirteen red-white alternate stripes and white stars on blue field. The number of white stars were representing a ”New Constellation” known as The United States. From 1777 until 1960 no major changes had occurred in the flag’s design, except some changes in shape and some stripes ads. It was known that in 1795 American flag had already 15 stripes and 15 stars. In 1959 the American flag suffered two changes under President Eisenhower: arrangement of seven rows of seven stars each; and after that the design changed into nine star rows placed horizontally and eleven rows vertically. Nowadays the design consists of thirteen stripes (7 red and 6 white), representing 13 basic colonies and 50 white stars of the Union
