Old Glory

Today is Flag Day, the idea came from Bernard Cigrand from Wisconsin and was made official by President Harry S. Truman in 1949.

The colors of our flag are: White - Old Glory Red & Old Glory Blue.

The name Old Glory is a nickname given to the flag that hangs in the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. by Captain William Driver. Captain Driver owned the flag and it traveled the world with him.

From what I read the colors: Old Glory Red & Blue can only be produced on material. I am guessing many an artist has tried to mix those colors as best that they can.

Happy Flag Day!
Long May She Waves
