A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Flags Collection - References to flags, including banners, ensigns, colors, standards, guidons, tabards, pennants, unions, and jacks, can be found in almost all cultures and ages. Probably the oldest source is the Bible where Moses and Aaron commanded the people to pitch their tents by "his own standard, with the ensign of their father's house" (Numbers 2:2). Persians showed eagles or suns. Greeks used a piece of armor on a spear, or emblems marked with letters. Egyptians had fans of feathers. Chinese dragons are of ancient origin. Romans had horses, bears, wolves, and also eagles. These all were carvings held on a staff, but the nearest thing to a flag was the "vexillum" of the Roman cavalry which was a square of fringed cloth hung from a crossbar on a spear. The Middle Ages saw the proliferation of the modern flag or banner with similar likenesses duplicated on shields and family crests. In the USA, the Continental Congress adopted a resolution on June 14, 1777: "Resolved: That the Flag of the united states be 13 stripes alternate red and white, that the Union be 13 stars white in a blue field representing a new constellation." Legend has it that Betsy Ross actually made the first such flag, but other stories also exist. As time went on, the flag grew as the rest of the states were added, eventually becoming what we have today. A joint resolution of Congress on December 22, 1942, provides a very detailed set of instruction as to how the flag should be properly displayed and handled. The actual Pledge to the flag is attributed to Francis Bellamy of Rome, NY. "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
