U.S. FLAG FOR KID'S


The right proportions, the right number of stripes in the right place and 50 stars in place too. Red stripes are identified with faint R for coloring red.

US Flag for kids: God Bless America

A great way to celebrate the 4th of July and remind us anytime that this great nation is a blessing from God.

Please have enough red and blue coloring materials so all the children can color it correctly. Please do not dishonor the flag by allowing the children to color it differently. We should always be respectful of our country's flag.

This is a simple flag to color, but tell them how important it is to respect the colors.

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."
Also this from a book about the flag published in 1977 by the House of Representatives...

"The star is a symbol of the heavens and the divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial; the stripe is symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun."

The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the Union.
