Nothing evokes such strong emotion as seeing the flag, either a ceremony honoring a great event or draped over a coffin as a sign of mourning for a hero or loved one.
Its unfurled banner, which symbolizes the love and pride that we have as a nation, is a poignant reminder of America’s greatness and our fortune to live in a country which values freedom above all else.
It signifies the commitment made by our fallen comrades who battled bravely to defend the honor of this sacred emblem —our American unity, our power, and our purpose as a nation and it exemplifies the devotion of our leaders who continue to uphold its promise of liberty, justice and freedom for all.
Our nation reveres the flag, not out of a sense of unquestioning worship, but out of a deep sense of our national heritage. Strengthened by our noble deeds, splendid accomplishments, and untold sacrifices, the flag reflects America’s pledge to uphold democracy and work for peace throughout the world. It is America’s strength in honor, as dignified in the stars and stripes of the flag, which helps to establish the moral character of our national foundation.
The Flag Certificate, authorized in 1987 by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, is presented to individuals, companies and government agencies that properly and proudly fly the flag of the United States of America for patriotic purposes.
The Rim Country Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution proudly presents the commendation to the Walmart Supercenter, Payson, for their continued proper display of our nation’s colors.
