Henry Ward Beecher
A thoughtful mind, when it sees a Nation's flag, sees not the flag only, but the Nation itself; and whatever may be its symbols, its insignia, he reads chiefly in the flag the Government, the principles, the truths, the history which belongs to the Nation that sets it forth.
George Bernard Shaw
Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it.
A man's feet must be planted in his country, but his eyes should survey the world.
George William Curtis
A man's country is not a certain area of land, of mountains, rivers, and woods, but it is a principle; and patriotism is loyalty to that principle.
I think patriotism is like charity -- it begins at home.
Patriotism is easy to understand in America; it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.
William Randolph Hearst
A politician will do anything to keep his job -- even become a patriot.
John F. Kennedy
Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

|Заголовок сообщения:||Flag Day|
In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.
In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.
Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, though on June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first (and only) U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday.
Title 36 of the United States Code, Subtitle I, Part A, CHAPTER 1, § 110 is the official statute on Flag Day; however, it is at the President's discretion to proclaim officially the observance.
The longest-running Flag Day parade is held annually in Quincy, Massachusetts, which began 1952 and will celebrate its 59th year in 2009.
The largest Flag Day parade is held annually in Troy, New York, which bases its parade on the Quincy parade and typically draws 50,000 spectators.
