The American Flag is an important symbol of our country. This simple piece of cloth represents ideas and principles for which people have sacrificed many things - like freedom and fundamental human rights. The song we just listened to - The Star Spangled Banner - is about the American Flag. Because it is so important, there are ceremonies for presenting the flag and for taking it down. There are also specific ways to fold it up. It is important for you to know some of these.
