New 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
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!
