Uncommon, paramount and brave, for centuries the U.S flag has been standing as the pillars of the Human Rights and Democracy….transcending every political thoughts and the form of governments.
The U.S flag not only illustrates the red, white, and the blue blended with the splendorous stars, but above that it presents and magnifies the ideal of Freedom and Liberty on the world-dimensional setting. It is the unparalleled, first… and the final aspirations of hope.
