Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor
White symbolizes Purity and Innocence
Blue represents Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice
The Star Spangled Banner
By Francis Scott Key 1814
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Happy 4th of July!
Happy INDEPENDENCE Day!
Happy BIRTHDAY America!
