The President’s Flag : Happy President’s Day 2020
Did you know that there is a flag specifically for the President of the United States?
Within the last few years special flags have been designed for the President, the Secretary of the Navy and Secretary of War. The President’s flag is a very beautiful blue banner, in the center of which is a spread eagle bearing the United States shield on its breast, with the thirteen stars in a half circle overhead. It is flown at the main mast-head of naval vessels while the President remains on board, and on being hoisted it is the signal for the firing of the President’s salute.— from BETSY ROSS AND THE FIRST FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: The People, Events, and Ideas Behind the Design and Creation of the Flag and Seal of the United States
