Support Our Flag Exhibit

About the Exhibit:

The history of the American flag is as varied and fascinating as the Republic it represents. It has led us in battles, inspired songs and symbolized democracy’s most cherished notion - freedom.

This exhibit invites visitors to take a walk through time to see how the flag has changed through the years. The design may have changed, and the number of stars may have increased, yet some things have remained constant: In good times and bad, the flag inspires us, represents us and unites us.
