New Year, New Flag

flag historicalNew Year, New Flag

It seems like January was a stellar (pun intended) month to join the Union, adding each State’s star to Old Glory. The constellation of the stars within the union, one for each State, is symbolic of our Federal Constitution, which holds each State to their individual sovereignty.

As these January-inducted States joined the Union, a Star was added. Here are the Seven:

Georgia January 2. 1787 The 17th Star

Connecticut January 9, 1788 The 18th Star

michigan-nylonMichigan January 26, 1837 The 26th Star

Kansas January 29, 1861 The 34th Star

Utah January 4, 1896 The 45th Star

New Mexico January 6, 1912 The 48th Star

Alaska January 3, 1959 The 49th Star

If you live in, are from, love one of these states, celebrate its induction this month. Fly Old Glory or order a State-specific Flag today. Start off the New Year flying your colors.

Happy New Year!
