The Pledge of Allegiance

The Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag

 “I pledge allegiance, to the flag, of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

As a child, I grew up saying this in school and even Vacation Bible School at church. Recited in the Boy Scouts of America too. There are many places this pledge is recited.

The Pledge of Allegiance, spoken with everyone that is able stands and spoken with their hand over their heart. Some will do a salute, like the in the military or Boys Scouts.

  • National  Pledge of Allegiance Day

September 8, 1892 is when the Pledge of Allegiance was first put into print. With that being said each year on September 8th is National Pledge of Allegiance Day.

Colors of the American Flag

The American Flag is Red, White and Blue. It has 13 Stripes for the 13 original colonies. The stripes are red and white. 7 Red stripes and 6 white stripes. There is blue square, called a canton, as mentioned in The Pledge to the Christian Flag, at the top corner with 50 white stars that represent the 50 states.
