Theme # 195 "National Pride"

This is of course a replica of the "Grand Union Flag", which is the first flag adopted by the Continental Army back in 1775. A very good description of this flag, its origins and history can be found here.
I found this treasure at the "Manor of St. George" located here on Long Island in Mastic, NY.

  1. Good to see your acknowledgement of the past contribution, we have discussions re the Union Jack in our Flag too. I see no fault in accepting the past for what it was, it is just a direction toward today, not the whole story.

  2. Lovely shot, Eddie. Unlike most shots of waving flags, yours has lots of texture and seems to have depth.

    Thanks for the link to info on the flag. It is an interesting historical replica.

  3. Like this flag photo, has lots of feeling of movement,
