  1. 1. The national flag of Pakistan was designed by Syed Amir-uddin Kedwaii and was based on the original flag of the Muslim League. It was adopted by the Constituent Assembly[1] on August 11, 1947, just days before independence.[2][3][4] The flag is referred to in the national anthem as Parcham-e-Sitāra-o-Hilāl in Urdu (lit. Flag of the Crescent and Star). The flag comprises a dark green field, representing the Muslim majority of Pakistan, with a vertical white stripe in the hoist, representing religious minorities.[5] In the centre is a white crescent moon and a white five-pointed star, which symbolize progress and light respectively.[5] The flag symbolizes Pakistan's commitment to Islam, the Islamic world, and the rights of religious minorities.[6] The flag is flown on several important days of the year including Republic Day and Independence Day. The flag was approved by Muhammad Ali Jinnah, founder of the nation. It is associated with the flag used by the All-India Muslim League as an emblem of its aim of achieving an independent Muslim state. Their flag was green, with a central white star and crescent. At independence in 1947, a white stripe was added at the hoist to represent the state's minorities. The green and white together stand for peace and prosperity. The crescent symbolizes progress, and the star represents light and knowledge
  2. 2. Made in the USA, these Peru Flags use DuPont’s heavy weight 200 denier nylon. This material represents the highest standard for lustrous beauty and flag life. It offers the best resistance to sun and chemical deterioration, and is fast drying as well. Precisely dyed, all seal and designs are in correct proportion to flag sizes. Even complex emblems exhibit with fine detail in brilliant colorfast colors.. They feature double stitched sewn edges and 4 rows (2 rows on the 12” x 18” flags) of lock stitching on the fly end. Lock stitching increases the durability of the flag and provides a nicer feel to the flag. In addition the flag heading uses a durable canvas heading reinforced with precision stitching and spurred brass grommets.
  3. 3. The flag of the United States consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of Red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The fifty stars on the flag represent the fifty U.S. states and the thirteen stripes represent the original thirteen colonies that rebelled against the British Crown and became the first states in the Union.[1] Nicknames for the flag include the Stars and Stripes, Old Glory,[2] and The Star- Spangled Banner (also the name of the national anthem).
  4. 4. Eric Hamlin said the flags were part of a world geography lesson plan at Carmody Middle School and refused to take them down. The school's principal escorted Hamlin out of class Wednesday morning after he refused to remove the flags of China and Mexico. The school district placed him on administrative leave for insubordination, citing a Colorado law that makes it illegal to display foreign flags permanently in schools. quot;Under state law, foreign flags can only be in the classroom because it's tied to the curriculum. And the principal looked at the curriculum, talked to the teacher, and found that there was really no curriculum coming up in the next few weeks that supported those flags being in the classroom,quot; said Jeffco Public Schools spokeswoman Lynn Setzer. But Hamlin said although his curriculum may not speak specifically about those flags, they are used as reference tools for world geography. quot;It's much along the lines of a science teacher who puts up a map of the solar system. They may not spend every day and every lesson talking about Mars, but they want the students to see that and to see the patterns of the planets and the order, and the
